Domaine Labet Les Parcelles Rares Trousseau 2016 Côtes du Jura

Had this at lunch yesterday courtesy of Ashleigh Barrowman of Scotch Wine Bar. It’s a quite beautiful wine, but initially on the nose it is a little scary, with some animal pretty notes (this is a natural wine with no added sulfites and total SO2 of 7 mg/litre). But it’s not a faulty wine: once you get it in your mouth, it all works, and the flavours and aromas all come together beautifully. It’s a gorgeously expressive lighter styled red, something the Jura does so well.

Light cherry red in colour. This is really aromatic with animally spicy high notes and fresh red cherries. On the palate it is fresh and bright with red cherries and plums, notes of cracked pepper, and a attractive sour cherry/damson twist that adds a little savoruiness. Fresh and delicious; funky but wonderful. 93/100
