2018 Michel Gahier Trousseau La Vigne du Louis
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.Younger vines usually produce lighter wine styles of less complexity than older vines, but wines that are pleasant drinking nevertheless. It has good structure, very good length and is really juicy making it very drinkable. The ‘young’ vines are twenty years old and lie on a south west facing slope. This vintage you can detect a fuller, supple velvety character emerging in the wine which is very appealing.
