Domaine Vendange Jacquère La Côte 2021

Savoie, FranceLocated in Combe de Savoie, on the foothills of the Massif des Bauges, Domaine Vendange stretches over 10 organically farmed hectares, on south facing slopes of youthful glacial till / limestone scree. The Vendange family has been involved with the viticulture and agronomic industries for many years, and are one of the largest vine nurseries in the region. After studying viticulture and oenology in Beaune, Benjamin Vendange returned in 2015 to the family property. With his partner Diane Gounel, oenologist from Languedoc-Roussillon, the step was taken to start their own estate with the family’s holdings. This Jacquère comes from 25 year old vines, and was native fermented and briefly rested in stainless, with a little bâtonnage post ferment. Light and lifted at 11.5%, this little mountainous white streams elderflower, lemon blossom, verbena along a sleek palate, with just a sheen of lees to buffer the alpine acidity. There's a lovely salinity throughout, which rears on the dissipate finish. A lovely curiosity.Tasted: 05 October 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
