Frederic Lornet Arbois Trousseau 2011

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a mail-order company [www.confitdirect.co.uk ] for £12. It is from the Jura wine region of France,a part of Franche-Comte between Burgundy and the Swiss border in the foothills of the Alps.The Arbois AOC was created in 1936 [although wine has been made in the region since at least medieval times] for wines from around the small town of that name and is the largest and most northerly AOC of the Jura region.My bottle is made from the trousseau grape,a grape which originated in this region but which is also grown in other parts of the world particularly Portugal where it is called bastardo and used in port wine. I started my bottle last night with my roast pork supper and I did enjoy it. It is a little bit pale in colour for a red wine. There is a strawberry,raspberry and cherry style fruit there and the tannins are soft. There is a pepper or spicy finish and it is fairly subtle and easy-drinking.It was a good accompaniment to the pork.

Frédéric Lornet:
The Lornet family have 19 hectares under vine and have been vignerons for generations.They operate from a restored Cistercian abbey where the monks were making wine in the medieval era. They started bottling their own wine in 1974 rather than sending grapes to the negociant or co-operative
