Jacquère is an indigenous grape from the alpine region of Savoie, of which “Apremont” is one of the most well-known appellations. Made from 100% Jacquère, “Apremont” is full of freshness with a delicate acidity. With white flower and citrus notes, this wine will perfectly match your first fondue of the season.
Vinification: Grapes are handpicked and are then pressed slowly and gently using a pneumatic system. The vats are thermos-regulated to 5 degrees in order to clarify the wine. This process allows them to reduce the use of sulphites. A week to ten days later, they extract the clear fluid, which will ferment with the yeasts naturally present in the grapes. Malolactic fermentation is not controlled, it might happen. Wine is aged on the lees until bottling.
Match it with: Indulgent cheese such as Beaufort, Comte or Raclette.
