Type: Sparkling Wine
The Gahier family has been in the Jura region since 1525. The family domaine is 6.5 hectares with the vineyards concentrated in the village of Montigny-les-Arsures, the place recognized as the home of Trousseau. Michel Gahier's skills and sensibility that produce undeniably outstanding wines that clearly express the very particular terroir of this part of the Jura.
Gahier harvests and vinifies his wines parcel by parcel. Each wine comes exclusively from a single vineyard site. The farming is organic and and the yields are quite low. Michel vinifies, ages, and bottles his wines without filtration or any additions whatsoever—no yeast, no sulfites, no nothing.
This wine is made from 100% Chardonnay aged 12 months on the lees before being disgorged and bottled without dosage. Firm and mineral, with laser sharp acidity, and slight bitter note of toasted almond. Like the rest of the wines from Gahier, production is very small.
