2020 Domaine Chevallier Bernard Jongieux Blanc
Located in the foothills of the Alps, the Savoie represents one of the last, great undiscovered wine regions of France. The vineyards are amongst widely dispersed, small communities, clustered together in the narrow alpine valleys, each seemingly with its own specialities in terms of grape varieties it elects (or is allowed) to grow.
Jongieux Blanc is made from the Jacquère grape variety. Its bunches take on pinkish colours at the end of ripening. Referred to as the Muscadet of the North this is a fresh, light, minerally and fruity wine with a very slight sparkle. It is best drunk young.
