Chignin, Savoie

Domaine Saint-Germain

Crac Boum’Bu Jacquère Blend 2019

I admit I’m sometimes a skeptic of clever labels, and seeing as I bought it a terrifically hip natty and natty-adjacent wine store I confess I went into this with a bad attitude but day-ummmm this is a thirst-quenching gulp of Savoie fare.
Lemon-y, light, seashells and daffodils it is springtime in a bottle which is astounding considering the guy skiing down the piste but I need to look up what the French says as I’m so many years past AP French lit I barely know how to say merde this is brilliant. You know what? It has this tickle though. Like it’s teasing at effervescence but it’s such a super-étoile it doesn’t need to sparkle to shine.

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. — 20 days ago

Ayse Terroir du Mont Blanc Brut Zéro Savoie Gringet 2013

Hay, yellow apple, hazelnuts and iron, a very interesting and oxidative nose. Medium bodied and not nearly the acidity levels of a Champagne, for example. But it works just fine. Hard attack from the mousse in the mouth. Three years on the lees, about five years of bottle age since disgorgement. For about 33€, this is amazing, would definitely buy again. — 13 days ago

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. — 15 days ago

Domaine de Chevillard

Vin de Savoie Jacquère 2018

Jäkligt trevlig syra som inte drar för mycket åt galna håll, den är närmast perfekt in the middle of the road. Liten eftertouch av söt frukt i slutet piffar till upplevelsen. Pompette, småpartierna. — 7 days ago
