Domaine des Ardoisières is one of the most exciting wine projects in Savoie, and this wine, labelled as 'Maison des Ardoisières' is a new addition, made with bought-in fruit from 50-60 year old vines in Apremont. 100% Jacquère (a local variety), it has a fresh lemon and floral quality, with layers of complexity. It rewards decanting, opening up beautifully over time.

Clean, direct nose makes a strong impression. Lots of fresh green vegy character – not unappealing. Gets the saliva flowing. Very confident.
