Vintage 2011 | When it is hot weather, I find a Trousseau a nice wine. It has an elegant structure and there is a lot to enjoy and discover. Half transparant, a bit strange colour, tuilé, Italian tileroofs, but not bright, cloudy. The smell is awesome: roses, tobacco, lakritz, and after aeration in the glass also minerals, plums, a hint of cherries. The taste is licht but frivolous. Love this. Drank it four years ago, this bottle has aged and it seems to gain in attractiveness. ❤️ 💥 | Paired with toast and mushrooms, farmers Gouda cheese afterwards

Sadly the last commercial vintage from the “pope of Arbois.” (I guess “Puff Daddy” was already taken). Excited to try some of the newer releases from Domaine du Pelican who acquired a lot of Puffeney’s holdings. As for this wine, it’s exceptionally beautiful and I’m just going to enjoy it rather than pick it apart. Elegant, vivacious, soulful, just really captivating and only gaining in intensity with time in the glass.
