Why Gahier doesn't get more love, I just don't get it. The wines are lovely, elegant but clearly Jura. This is the non-topped up one. If wine could be chicken soup, this would be it.

Way too funky, with a sharply acetic finish that detracts from the lemony breadiness. Not the gorgeousness I was expecting from Gahier!

Funky town. Chex Mix, oxidized lemon, Brazilian nuts, needs to decant.

On point. Delicious balance and level of voile-ishness. Stunning really.

Nice texture and body, but e.a. dominates.

So much funk and savory herbs. Touch of petrol. Lemon and screaming acidity and floral in bouquets. Killer wine!

Feels like a whole vineyard in a bottle. Drank it too quickly to really understand the highness i guess.
Arbois chardonnay with feathers.

Musty nose. Savory and tart and saline. Almost sherry. Sweet nuttiness as it warms. Beautiful.

Very cider like - citrus & yeast. Nice with cheese by the firepit! And then after with shrimp & grits 😊
