Argile Blanc Allobroges St. Pierre de Soucy Jacquère Blend 2017

Chablis like... delicious... long finish. Muted aroma but some clean green apple and pear. Lots of minerality on palate. Touch of strawberry on the nose? — 4 days ago

El Hem Roussette de Savoie Altesse 2015

9.3

Enigmatic and just tremendous aromas. Ripe pear, lavender, mountain herbs, Bosc pear, apple skin, lovely nose. Mountain stream. So fresh, dynamic and pure. Palate is rich, ripe, opulent and concentrated with a whiplash of juicy fruit, herbs and insane acidity. Long, balanced and so pure. Shows ripeness of vintage with classic Altesse acidity, herbaciousness and freshness. — 25 days ago

Obuscule Bugey Gamay Mondeuse

Definitely needs some age—tart and tight, but a shockingly gorgeous color coming into the glass. — 23 days ago

La Deuse Vin de Savoie Mondeuse Noir 2016

Lyle Fass
9.3

Heavenly nose. Such a unique Mondeuse. Floral, lifting, grapey, berries, bright. So so mesmerizingly aromatic. Complex and juicy with nice focus but seems a bit thin and closed. Tannins are ripe and juicy and so pure, but also a bit chalky? I think this might need air as the finish is long and persistent. I think it’s either a root day or it needs air. I’ll be back.

UPDATE - after an hour this was what I remember. 8.9 to 9.3. Full of fruit and crackle.

Domaine de L'Idylle

Pétille Idylle Crémant de Savoie Sparkling Blend

It’s so good af. Sappy like that savory heavy hint of green things by also peaches but ripe tangerines and white peaches. An amalgamation of wonk and whimsy. Domaine d’Idylle making me happy. Per the usual. I should visit Savoie. — 24 days ago
