Pure and feral fruit.
Bottes Rouges Gibus is composed of 100% Trousseau from the Arbois AOC in the Côtes du Jura. Trousseau is a rare type of grape indigenous to the region, and it’s starting to experience a meteoric rise in Portugal and the United States. This Trousseau was fermented and aged in stainless steel, resulting in a serious and full-bodied wine that would appeal to Burgundy and Rhône-lovers alike!
