2017 Domaine De Montbourgeau Trousseau
The Domaine de Montbourgeau is situated in the southwestern area of the Jura.
More precisely in the village of L’Etoile - meaning 'star'. depending on who you ask, the name comes from either the fact that five hills are surrounding the village make the shape of a star or, because of the many fossils of ancient starfish that you can find in the soils of this appellation. Either way, it is one of the smallest in the Jura with only 52 hectares. When harvest time comes, the grapes are pick by hands and then vinified in the cave underneath Deriaux's home. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks using strictly indigenous yeasts. Then all the wines are racked into a mix of old foudres, demi-muids and smaller barrels. The small quantity of wines produced is then bottled, with no fining and a light filtration.
