Le Feu Vin de Savoie Gringet 2017

Beautiful. Apple and mineral nose. Petrichor. Aromas somewhere between a mineral riesling and Chablis, a little oxidative but so crisp. Palate is not very dense but has a lovely briskness and a lingering finish. Interesting secondary qualities just starting to develop. — 4 days ago

Les Filles Vin de Savoie Chignin-Bergeron Roussanne 2019

Wow. Like a CPB blanc (Beaucastel VV?) with a bit of humor and some mountain air. Grapefruit, wet stone, pine, lemon oil, waxy palate, bitter almond. Need more of this in my life. Beautiful stuff @Lyle Fass — 9 days ago

Tout un Monde Vin de Savoie Mondeuse Noir 2010

Good length. Juicy red and black fruits. Very syrah-like. Still wound tight behind mountain of acid and tannin. Would love to revisit in 5-10 years. — 17 days ago

A great summer hot 90 degree day wine. Lovely nose. Really open. White flowers, mountain air, spice, pine needles. Scene in nature type aromas. Palate is like drinking a vinous mountain stream. Balanced, compact, fresh and pure. Gorgeous juiciness and length. Really interesting herbal flavors and some lemony flavors as well. Great texture and density yet so light on its feet. Fantastic. — 9 days ago

Riper tranche perhaps? But even tastier this time around. Surprising more ripe and developed than most Idylle still wines. Cremant de Savoie … get u some — 3 days ago

9.1

Intriguing, beguiling red, ruby barely opaque w/evolving nose of blackberry and plum Gummy Bear, a lift (maybe Alpine?) but def hi-toned note, herby Ricola, devious spice, medicinal & forest floor, floral. Needs food, played well w/duck breast. Med weight & med acidity. As @Lyle Fass mentioned: Gamay-esque, also reminded me of Lagrein. Killed this bottle in no time. Unique & esoteric variety, thanks Lyle — 17 days ago

Domaine des Ardoisières

Argile Blanc Allobroges St. Pierre de Soucy Jacquère Blend 2018

Pale, waxy and stoney with a mild lemon twist and saline lift at the back end that demands another sip. Very clean/natural and I’m guessing no oak. Quite interesting. — 25 days ago
