The Trois Cepages, as the name suggests, is a blend of three grapes. It has been produced since the winery's inaugural vintage, in 2012. At the time, the decision was made to vinify all of their red grapes together, thereby creating this blend of Pinot Noir (60%), Trousseau (35%) and Poulsard (5%). The vineyards for Trois Cepages are all located in the village of Montigny-les-Arsures. The geology of the soils are composed of predominatly grey and black marls, partially covered with fallen rocks. The vineyards broadly face West, at an altitude between 300 and 400 meters. Elevage is in Burgundy barrels (50%) and foudre.

VinousThe 2018 Arbois Trois Cepages a is brilliant introduction to Guillaume D'Angerville's Jura reds. Bright and punchy, the Trois Cepages offers superb fruit intensity in the mid-weight, lifted style that is typical of these wines. The warm growing season gives this blend of Pinot Noir, Trousseau and Poulsard an extra kick of radiance that works so well.

Wine AdvocateThe latest of a red blend they have been making from the beginning, the 2018 Arbois Trois Cépages is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir, 35% Trousseau and 5% Poulsard. This has a ripe nose, with notes of cherries and orange peel and a round palate. 90-91
