I was not that familiar with this varietal and so thought I would wiki for all interested: “Trousseau or Trousseau Noir, also known as Bastardo and Merenzao, is an old variety of red wine grape originating in eastern France. It is grown in small amounts in many parts of Western Europe; the largest plantations are today found in Portugal, where most famously it is used in port wine. It makes deep cherry red wines with high alcohol and high, sour candy acidity, and flavours of red berry fruits, often complemented - depending on production - by a jerky nose and an organic, mossy minerality.”

Red fruits, white pepper, green herbs, flowers, and a little something savory and spicy. Such and enjoyable wine.

Sad it’s all coming to an end. Very good.

For me, trousseau is all about aromas and this wine delivers. it‘s like walking in the woods or an English garden spring quality: wildflowers, wild strawberries, blood orange and loads of other lovely things. Tart to taste but not as light and bright as I was expecting. Tannins were a bit grippy and drying on the finish.
