Crocus Alpinus Terroir d'Ayze Vieilles Vignes White Blend 2017

Floral nose. Opening gushes like a mountain stream, great acidity. More florals, mineral, spring water, slight medicinal note, fresh honey, mouth-coating finish. Lovely work. — 8 hours ago

Dominique Lucas

IGP Vin de Pays d'Allobrogie Savagnin

This was a Wow wine for me and our staff. Rich tropical fruit, acid, minerality. Along with the Rayas, one of the more memorable wines this year. This is the second wine that I have had from Dominique Lucas. Both exceptional. — 5 days ago

Domaine Gilles Berlioz

La Deuse Vin de Savoie Mondeuse Noir 2017

85% Mondeuse, 15% Persan. 11% ABV. 24mg/l sulfur. Matchstick / toasted nut, slight spritz and funk at opening. Lovely at 2hrs decant. Tons of violet, rose and very floral / potpourri, white pepper, purple fruited (pomegranate, cassis and plum), currant, red apple skin, black cherry skins, raspberry. Love the way this evolves with air, fresh plum skin tannins and florals. Intriguing and sexy and utterly drinkable — 17 days ago

Domaine Belluard

100% Pur Jus Gringet

This seemed to have skin contact. Definitely a geek wine. We enjoyed this with breaded chicken breasts and arugula salad. I prefer Belluard’s Les Alpes and Le Feu to this. — 6 days ago

Sansoufrir... Savoie Jacquère 2017

The story of brown mealy apples. From your childhood.

Jacquere Sansoufrir...free to roam. Smells like that sippy cup of Motts. Tastes like an apple slice at the bottom of your lunch box - browned and oxidized, squirt of lemon, sprinkle of salt.

It should remind you of feather weight Fino Sherry. Dry, lean, saline. Made for all the before-dinner salty snacks I love.

Crac Boum’Bu Jacquère Blend 2019

Erik Helms
9.1

Fun wine! The nose really puts you in the fresh alpine snows and spring waters with its lemon/lime zest, liveliness, and freshness. Slivered almonds add some additional depth, this one will over deliver if you’re looking for spring or early summer refreshment. — 12 days ago
