Description

From the winery – “Pete Stolpman’s esoteric project is labeled “Combe” referring to the French word for a small sheltered valley within a vineyard. Sometime around 2010, Pete became convinced of the great potential for the pale red Trousseau grape on the Limestone soils of Stolpman Vineyards.  We decided to make a light red Trousseau and a Trousseau Pet’Nat.  The first vintage for the Trousseau wines was 2014, and we now have 3.5 acres planted to the varietal.  Our 1.5 acres of Chenin began producing in 2016.  We blended the tiny first crop from our .5 acres of Mondeuse into the Vin Gris.  In 2020 Mondeuse added color and acidity to both the Combe Pet’Nat and Vin Gris. In 2020, Jessica Stolpman made just a few cases of a Savagnin-Chardonnay co-fermentation from the very first grapes of Savagnin produced from Stolpman.  The 2 acre block of Savagnin will perhaps produce enough wine to sell in 2021, 2022 at the latest… Utterly mashable with a serious edge.  Light red fruit with notes of whole-cluster dried herbs.  It is tough not to fall in love with 2020 Combe Trousseau, fruit purity, velvety texture, and intriguing dry tactile notes.”
