2012 JP & JF Quénard "Les Damoiselles" Vin de Savoie-Chignin Bergeron

SKU #1169275

This cuvée, named after the Quénard's four daughters, is made from Roussanne vines grown on the steep, chalky hillside slopes of Chignin. The grapes are hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel; malolactic fermentation helps round out the wine and adds richness on the palate. With ripe apricot and white peach flavors and a bit of minerality, this is a mouth-watering white at a very affordable price.

A great discovery! Pretty with great depth and structure. Try this with a triple cream like St Andre or Cowgirl Creamery's Mt Tam, with a tomato jam or a pear, ginger, vanilla spread on crusty bread.

My favorite Roussanne (the local name in Savoie is Bergeron) on its own as a grape variety is Beaucastel's Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes. With that wine approaching the $200 mark, I can't say it is a fair comparison, but for about 10% of that cost, you can get a LOT of wine in the "Les Damoiselles." What I'm trying to say is, this is one of the sexiest, most intriguing Roussannes on the market at any price. Copious amounts of stone fruit flavors with notes of dried mango and a nice thread of chalky minerality. You gotta try it.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
