The Badoz Trousseau Les Roussots comes exclusively from 32 year old vines in this prime site in Poligny. Trousseau is late to bud and develops a black-purple color as it ripens. The soil is gravel mixed with red clay and grey-marne over a base of limestone. Grass is planted in every 2nd row while the others are plowed. The grapes are hand-picked, transferred to the winery in small plastic crates, sorted on a sorting table, and de-stemmed. The fruit is given 4 days of pre-fermentation cold maceration at 8 degrees centigrade. The alcoholic fermentation begins with only native yeasts. It lasts for 2 weeks in wide 50 hectoliter tanks with occasional pumping-over of the juice over the cap of grape skins. The Trousseau completes its malolactic fermentation in tank and is bottled in June. It has a supple texture, medium dark color and body, and bright flavors of blue-plums, dark cherries with notes of pepper and minerals.

In 1923 the Caroni plain’s sugarcane plantation and distillery were founded in Trinidad. In 2003, when the islands sugarcane refinery and production was shuttered by the government, the distillery subsequently was forced to close the same year. Two years later La Maison and Velier, a company that bottles rare spirits, purchased all of the remaining stock at the Caroni facility. The rums for this product were distilled in 2000 using a double column still and a copper pot still and aged in oak. In 2017 this rum was developed using a stock of seven barrels that was blended to 55% ABV, creating 2700 bottles total to be released worldwide.
