2015 Veronique Anne Perret Vin de Savoie Apremont

SKU #1272505

The village of Apremont once sat in the shadow of a great mountain. In 1248 that mountain collapsed, destroying, everything in its path. Fortunately, the mountain itself was made of limestone which is some of the best geological material for growing grapes and the site is littered with limestone scree (broken rock fragments). The grape of choice for the region is Jacquère and some of the best comes from this village. Like most wines from Savoie, the Perret has hallmark aromas of citrus and lemongrass with a touch of peach as well. Where it really excels is in the mineral department - you can smell the limestone and the cool winds of the Alps. It’s the personification of skiing down a wintry slope just tucked away in your glass. (Keith Mabry, French Regional Buyer)

Such a refreshing wine, with qualities that I fondly call "Alpiny" - It is crisp and dry, with notes of sweet peaches, and citrus. Absolutely perfection with light seafood indeed!

I think one of the great undiscovered white varieties on the scene is Jacquere. This workhorse white grape of Savoie creates the clean crisp mineral driven whites from the region that are pure pleasure in a glass. Apremont is one of the best terroirs for Jacquere and the Perret offers notes of white peaches, lemon grass, wet stone and lime zest. There is nice medium body but vibrant acidity which makes this the ideal traditional pairing for raclette and fondue. It is also superb with any number of shell fish dishes.

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.
