Lucien Aviet 'Cuvée des Géologues' Rouge 2019Regular price £43.00
The Jura is the cooler, wetter, and - let's face it - weirder neighbour of Burgundy, but its wines couldn't be more distinctive. Out of the cellars of Trousseau specialist Lucien Aviet (friend and contemporary of master vigneron Pierre Overnoy) come some of the region's purest, most hedonistically perfumed reds. Aviet learnt his trade alongside Pierre Overnoy under the guidance of Chauvet and Macle, but the vines and cellar are now in the capable hands of his son, Vincent. Cuvée des Géologues (named after the geologists who helped Lucien select the best terroirs in the Montigny-les-Arsures commune in Arbois) shows pure red cherry and cranberry fruit on its poised and silky palate.
