Michel Gahier is one of the top insider tips in the Jura. He has just 6.5 hectares of vines, and works very naturally in both the vineyard and the cellar. This wine is from a special Trousseau vineyard with very old (55-80 years) vines on a southwest-facing slope. He’s a neighbour of famous natural winegrower Jacques Puffeney.
Michel Gahier Trousseau Les Grands Vergers 2011 Arbois, Jura, France
12.5% alcohol. Supple, sappy nose with some fresh green herbal notes as well as raspberries, cherries and spice. The palate is vivid, sappy and fresh with a supple green edge to the sweet fruit. There are also notes of minerals and earth. Fleeting, ephemeral and detailed, this lovely Jura red tastes natural and alive. 93/100 (UK agent Les Caves de Pyrene)
