This is not cheap for what it is but I have a soft spot for this producer as the trousseau was among my first experiences with the region years ago. Plus I just dig the label. It has the expected reduction and yeast at first but dissipates quickly, revealing fresh red cherries, berries and rhubarb, rose petal, iron and that ineffable Jura funk. Enjoyed immensely while preparing and devouring some rigatoni with pork sausage and mushrooms — a day ago
I’ll preface this with the fact that I don’t drink a lot of Pinot as I’m not a huge fan.
This was an awesome rec from the guys at Amathus! 30+ minute decant. Lovely red color with ever so slight brown edges. Nose contained oak, vanilla, and strawberries. Cherries, cream, maple syrup, and cinnamon on the palate. Definitely on the sweeter side. This was like drinking cheesecake with cherries and cinnamon on top. Reminded me of the Dimchurch Shiraz, except in Pinot form. Could have been a little deeper, but had a great finish! Paired lovely with a sausage stuffed chicken breast, small Cornish potatoes, and cinnamon covered pears. One of the best dinners I’ve cooked in a while too, so I’m sure that impacted the experience and rating :)

Lucky to try the trousseau and ploussard one after the other. Very different wines the the trousseau light on this feet and this one needing a bit of time in a carafe to show a mix of red berries and spice. Tons of funk than needed to blow off as well. — 6 days ago
Also took seven hours for fruit to begin to show. Powerful. Notice the "RC" in place of a number. This is one bottle of a few cases of the Reserve Chateau bottles that mistakenly got released from this vintage. Typically these bottles are reserved for Chateau dinners and kept in their cellar there. — a day ago
