The Courbet estate was founded in 1869, and like many at the time, it grew not only grape vines, but grains and livestock as well. Over the last 50 years, it has exclusively grown wine grapes and wine. It is run by the father-son them of Jean-Marie (father) and Damien (son) Courbet. The estate currently has 7.5 hectares of vineyards, half of which are located on slopes directly below the famous Chateau Chalon. Most vineyards are located near the village of Domblans and Menétru. Vineyard practices are certified organic and biodynamic.

The Courbets grow Savagnin on limestone marl soils, Chardonnay white grapes on limestone soils, and Trousseau, Pinot Noir and Poulsard red grapes on marls with some limestone and schist. This wine is 100% Trousseau (also known as Bastardo in Portugal) with grapes mostly destemmed except a small portion of which is whole cluster fermented, lending a spiciness to the finished wine. It is aged for 10 months in stainless steel before bottling.

A beautiful bright cherry hue, there are aromas of fresh raspberries, red currants, cherries, with spicy notes of white pepper, and forest floor. Nice bright acidity with restrained tannins make this a perfect red to drink alone or with chicken, pork, salmon, smoke meats and sausages.
