“Les Grands Vergers” represents Gahier’s oldest Trousseau: 80-year-old vines in a south-facing parcel contiguous with Puffeney’s legendary “Les Berangères” vineyard. Each vintage, it is the clear star among Michel’s reds. With its remarkable concentration, profound minerality, and tight-grained, savory palate, it always evolves beautifully in bottle. Gahier has opened many older examples of this cuvée with us over the years, proving definitively that wines made without added sulfur can age effortlessly if they’re produced and stored responsibly.
