2011 Domaine Frederic Giachino Vin de Savoie- Apremont
This bottling of 100% Jacquère is hand-harvested and aged on fine lees before bottling. The nose rings of mineral and citrus fruit which repeat on the palate with pineapple, meyer lemon, and elderberry. From the importer: "In 1988, Frederic Giachino took over his family’s very small estate of 1.5 hectares and over time has grown it to 7 hectares. Although the domaine had been worked before his arrival using traditional viticultural techniques, Frederic took the big step to convert the estate to use all organic practices. This continues today with no use of any synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers." 11% abv.
