Michel Gahier Arbois Trousseau Le Clousot 2020
Michel Gahier's wines have always represented a fine and elegant style, a lightly bridled venture into the Jura not to be missed. Some words from Roger & Sue of Living Wines who import these beauties.
Le Clousot is a Trousseau that is lighter than the Grands Vergers, it is a paler colour but has a vibrant freshness and hints of smokiness.
The 2020 is incredibly vibrant and exciting and represents a leap forward for this already amazing winemaker.
It is made in exactly the same way as the Grands Vergers but the fruit is sourced from the youngest vines that Michel owns.
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 quite juicy – hence is very drinkable. The ‘young’ vines are twenty years old and lie on a south west facing slope.
No sulphite has been added to this wine at any time during the winemaking process or at bottling.
