Jacquère 2018

£26.00

A Wine That

makes everybody smile. A true crowdpleaser, this reminds us of Chablis but with a snow-peaked Alpine twist. Think lemon rind, smokiness, lime juice and a touch of white pepper, this is the kind of wine that 'tastes of more' and is extremely versatile. Drink this alone or with pretty much any dish — we recommend mushroom risotto or fish pie.

Jacquère

Where and How?

This comes from organically farmed vineyards of Jacquère around the towns of St. Pierre d’Albigny and St. Jean de la Porte, in the Savoie, from vines planted on clay-limestone.
The whole bunches were pressed directly and very slowly in a large wooden barrel press which dates back to the 1870s! His great-grandfather used to use it. The wine was then left to age on its lees untouched in old foudres for 11 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with very low sulfites.

The Winemaker: Domaine de Chevillard

The words ‘picturesque’ and ‘scenic’ are used a lot when it comes to wine and rural French villages, but Saint Pierre d'Albigny — where talented young winemaker Matthieu Goury is based — takes the prize for one of the most beautiful places we’ve ever had the fortune of visiting. It’s a tiny hamlet which looks as though it belongs in a fairytale, and the wines Matthieu is making there in his traditional Savoyard cellar fill us with equal wonder.
He may only be at the beginning of his path, but his wines have already achieved fine wine status, helping to bring the joys of the Savoie wine region and its indigenous varieties to an international audience.
