Le Caveau de Bacchus Trousseau 'Cuvée des Geologues Les Ruzard', Arbois, Jura, France 2016

The Bacchus estate is renowned for its long-lived Trousseau. A recent tasting from wine critic and friend John Gilman, conveys just that in his May 21 edition of View From the Cellar:

2016 Trousseau Ruzard “Cuvée des Géologues” Réserve- Caveau de Bacchus (Arbois) The Aviet family’s Ruzard bottling of Trousseau from the high altitude Ruzard vineyard is a beautiful bottle. The bouquet is more open and less reductive when first opened than the equally impressive les Bruyères, delivering a superb bouquet of dark berries, bitter cherry, a hint of tree bark, a gorgeous mineral foundation, cola, botanicals, peonies and just a touch of spiced meats in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and still tightly-knit, with a good core, excellent soil inflection and grip, ripe tannins and a long, complex and very nicely balanced young finish. I love the backend closing notes of botanicals and bitter cherry, all wrapped around a heart of stone. This will need some bottle age to really drink with generosity, but it is going to be a stellar wine in due course. 2027-2055+. 95.
