(2022) From Savoie in eastern France, this is 100% Trousseau fermentated and aged 12 months in wooden vats and demi-muids, 10% new. Typically pale and transluscent rim, and a sweet cherry and earth fragrance, hinting at pulpy strawberry but with a serious side too. In the mouth there's a raft of soft, sweet fruit, dark and gently spiced, an underpinning leafiness adds a layer, but it is the sweet and delicious fruit that persists into a fresh, nimble finish.
