Arnot-Roberts was the pioneer when it comes to bottling Trousseau on its own from northern California and this cuvée has justifiably developed quite a following. The 2016 version comes in at a cool 12.5 percent octane and is a classic, pale ruby color, with a touch of amber at the rim. The bouquet is already developing the autumnal tones that Trousseau is so famous for, as it wafts from the glass in a fine blend of desiccated cherries, forest floor, bonfires, lovely soil tones, a touch of coffee grounds and a topnote of pepper. On the palate the wine is medium-full, complex and very transparent, with tangy acids, modest tannins and a long, autumnally complex finish. This is a lovely example that really makes one think of the Jura! 2017-2025+
