Lucien Aviet, Trousseau 'Cuvée des Géologues' Marne Rouge 2019
Aviet is a Trousseau specialist, producing what many would put as the best reds in Jura. The texture here is sublime, like ridiculous. Classically styled, there's plenty of elegance here rather than exuberance as we've come to expect from so many producers. Brooding. Great now, will be sublime in a few.
