Domaine Jean Perrier et Fils Abymes AOC Savoie
A French white wine from calcium rich soil with an east to westerly exposure of the Savoie region using the Jacquere grape, a native grape of the area.
Manual harvest, pneumatic pressing, native yeasts and a temperature controlled fermentation at 20° c over a period of three weeks gives a wine, white gold in colour with hints of green. Fresh almond, hawthorn and citrus fruit on the nose. A lively attack on the palate but rounds out with lovely mineral notes and orange zest. Excellent balance between fruit and acidity.
Serve with fish, cheese, and savoie specialities like fondue and raclette.
