Julien Mareschal created Domaine de la Borde at Pupillin back in 2003.  The vineyards of Pupillin are located just south of Arbois in the Jura.   From 5 hectares of vines just 1.5 hectares are dedicated to red grapes from which this wine was made from.  Half of these vines are more than 30 years old with the remaining planted between 1985 and 1990.   The fruit is hand harvested then raised in a combination of stainless steel and oak.  The 2011 Domaine de la Borde, Trousseau sous la Roche, Arbois Pupillin was enticingly aromatic but also forthcoming about its structured personality.  It is a fresh, young wine that is best left to develop in the cellar.  If you cannot wait then eat it with some meat.   This wine was purchased at Weygandt-Wines.

2011 Domaine de la Borde, Trousseau sous la Roche, Arbois Pupillin – $32
Imported by Weygandt-Metzler.  This wine is 100% Trousseau.  Alcohol 12.5%.  There were robust aromas of tight berries that built to reveal pungent, complex bitters.  In the mouth the young flavors had a bright start then were dry in the middle with a tart cherry finish.  The structure was drying with notes of wood polish and tannins.  This young wine remained fresh with tangy flavors and a cellar-worthy future.  **(*) 2016-2022.
