2015 Michel Gahier Arbois 'La Fauquette' Melon

Jura, France

This is the ‘sous voile’ wine made from the mutant grape found only in the Jura called Melon le Queue Rouge. The barrel in which it matures is not topped up as with the other two white cuvées. Instead, as the wine evaporates through the pores of the barrel a thin veil (voile) of yeast forms on the surface of the wine and this protects the wine from excessive oxidation. She is mellow, pretty, exquisitely balanced and very delicious. 14%.

About the maker

Michel, the quiet but very talented vigneron from Jura, tends to his vines meticulously and his wines are full of purity and minerality.

Michel tends 6 hectares of vines of which 3 hectares are given over to Trousseau and the remainder is split between Chardonnay and Savagnin. He makes his wine using the traditional techniques of the Jura and is in a town called Montigny, regarded as the finest terroir for the Trousseau grape in the Jura.
