We had a massive response on our recent offer of the 1990 Magnums of Pinot Noir from Rolet; we even had a few clients reach out saying they have tasted a few older wines from the Domaine that have been incredible. A big recommendation was for the Trousseau, so we went back and locked in what we could find of the 1985 in Magnum. This is a fun offer because we rarely see wines from the Jura this old unless they are Vin Jaune, and Trousseau is a grape that has the structure to last for decades. Its high acidity, bright fruit, and incredible minerality make it a good candidate for aged reds from the Jura. As we touched on in our previous offer, Rolet was initially founded in the 40s by Deserie Rolet, who was later joined by his children, acquiring a few excellent holdings in Arbois and Cote du Jura along the way. Though the Domaine is run by three different families now, 1985 would have been made by some of the original family members. Rolet has almost no exposure in the USA, and these back-vintage bottles are limited ex-cellar releases from the Domaine. Like many of the great producers in the Jura, farming is the primary interest, and Rolet has been utilizing organic and sustainable techniques since the beginning. Rolet knew these wines needed time to come around, so it was a smart decision to bottle them in Magnum and tuck them away. We've heard nothing but great about these bottles, and after selling out of our last offer, we don't imagine these will last very long. Once again, these are the only bottles available in the USA, and quantity is a little more limited than our previous offer, so don't miss out on this incredibly rare find.
