2019 Joseph Dorbon Trousseau
/ Single Bottle
Trousseau reigns supreme in Montigny-les-Arsures, the home village of Michel Gahier and Jacques Puffeney, where it produces wines of power and structure from the village’s grey-marl soils; by contrast, Vadans’ yellow-marl soils produce a more easygoing version of the variety, and Dorbon thusly treats it more breezily in the cellar than he does his Poulsard, aging it in stainless steel for just one year and applying no sulfur whatsoever. With its clean, ringing black-cherry fruit and its varietally true spice character, Joseph’s 2018 Trousseau dazzles with its purity and drive, with only a wisp of tannins tying the package together.
