Jean Perrier & Fils - Apremont - 2019
Region: Savoie - France
The family Domaine was founded in 1853 in this picturesque Alpine region of Savoie. Savoie may be one of France’s smaller and lesser-known regions, but it is big on personalities. Today, Jean Perrier is operated by brothers Philippe, Christophe and Gilles, who took over in the 1980s from their father, Gilbert Perrier. The Perrier brothers farm their vineyards organically, even though they aren’t certified. The Domaine has slowly expanded over the generations but improving quality has always been the priority. With a focus on indigenous grapes, their vineyards are planted to Jacquere, Altesse and Mondeuse, among others.
The Cru of Apremont is located just South of the town of Chambéry in the Savoie region. Wines from Apremont are made from the local indigenous variety Jacquere.
Yellow apple, fennel and lemon zest notes, with lively floral notes on the finish. A very refreshing wine.
