2015 Michel Gahier Le Grands Vergers Trousseau
Michel Gahier is based in Montigny-les-Arsures where his family have lived since 1525. It's often considered the best village in Jura for Trousseau and it also has the added bonus of housing the legendary Pope of the Jura. The now retired Jacques Puffeney lives next door to Gahier and his influence can be seen in the purity and detail of the wines, all of which are made from single parcels, all from organic fruit.This is an amazing example of a Trousseau wine having the delicacy that we associate with this fragile grape but also an extraordinary depth of flavour and a complexity that is intriguing. There are tannins present giving it structure but they are not aggressive. The wine is lively on the nose, has deep, deep flavours and it tastes alive with a lingering mineral aftertaste. This is a living wine! No sulphite is added.
