Savoie Wine Selection

32.00

The Savoie is famous for mountains and some of the best skiing in the World, but not so much for its wine. We thought this a shame as the region is awash with small and large vineyards producing some often over-looked wines. And here we share a few with you.

The landscape and the rapid, often brutal, changing of the seasons means the wine has a distinct flavour, colour and strength almost unique to this mountainous part of France. The grapes which cling to the steep slopes of the Alps are Jacquére, Roussanne, Altese, Bergeron and our favourite, the Mondeuse.

Our selection here showcases the Jacquére grape in the white Apremont. The Mondeuse has an outing in the red and our Savoie rosé shows you what the little Bergeron grape can do.

Now all you have to do is decided what to eat with it. Perhaps we could suggest our Savoyard range? Tartiflette? Beef Mondeuse?

JF Marechal Apremont Blanc

Part of your Savoie range, the Apremont is a scintillating mountain secret. A hidden ski resort a stones throw from the meg-resorts with fresh powder and no queues. Something to keep all to yourself.

Typical of the region's style - dry, floral and mineral with zippy acidity to hold everything together.
Great flavours and local know-how compliment the hearty foods of the mountains. A superb accompaniment with meats and tartiflette.

Maréchal Mondeuse Désir des Ducs

Made in the Apremont region of the Alps and rammed with luscious cassis flavour, this is as fruit-forward as wine gets. A great Savoie wine.

This is a well textured wine with cherry notes and a lot of spice. Think of a spicy Syrah with lots of layered fruity flavour. A superb accompaniment to the foods of the region. So perfect for our Savoyard range. Tartiflette, beef Mondeuse and Chicken Savoyard.

Quenard Rosé

A great dry, Savoie Rosé, well balanced with tropical notes on the nose. Medium-bodied with a fresh, zingy finish. Perfect on a sunny day with our tartiflette or in the comfort of your chalet, in front of a roaring fire on a bitterly cold February evening.
