Michel Gahier Arbois Chardonnay Les Follasses 2022

MCF Rare Wine

From 45-year-old Chardonnay planted in marne blanche (white marl), “Les Follasses” is topped up in cask, but nonetheless delivers an unhinged expression of saline minerality. The marl here—a layer of decomposed limestone mixed with clay—pre-dates the limestone that dominates Burgundy’s Côte d’Or, and it is this marl (in varying iterations of color and mineral composition) that dominates the terroir of the Jura.
