Purveyors of fine grape juice
2015 Michel Gahier Les Crêts jura, france
$80

The grapes for this wine are manually harvested and matured in old wood so that the wine can ‘breath’ but so that no new oak flavour dominates the wine.
There is the trademark oxidative quality to this wine which provides a nutty spiciness and umami flavour that makes you want to sip more and more of it. This is Jura Chardonnay at its best! There are honey and pear and almond flavours in abundance and a long, lingering minerality that reflects the amazing terroir of the area around Michel’s village.
