    100% Melon à Queue Rouge (13% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    Melon à queue rouge is an ancient strain of chardonnay (here from 50yo vines) grown by only three top producers in Arbois. Aged in old foudres for three years and topped up, this is an unbelievably fine wine, with a pale gold colour, the mouthfeel of a fine white burgundy, restrained citrus fruits, a good cut of acidity, and very saline on the finish. For drinking now to 2020.

    100% Trousseau (13% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    Les Rosiers is the finest of Aviet's three cuvées of Trousseau. It lies alongside the famous walled clos of vines belonging to Pasteur, and comprises ½ hectare of south facing, 40yo vines, planted in a quick draining, gravelly soil. It has a similar delicate, mid-red colour to the Bruyères, clarity of fruit and mineral stamp, but at the same time a density, richness and good structure, with spicy notes on the finish. Will age very well. For drinking now to 2024.
