Winemaking: Organic Jacquère and Altesse grapes from vines in Biodynamic conversion were harvested by hand. Fermentation with indigenous yeast before 2/3 of the wine was aged in stainless steel and the rest in old oak barrels. Bottled with no fining, filtration or added sulphur.
This Wine: A natural white wine with a concentrated and precise mineral character. As the label suggests, this is all about the sea with strong salinity and something reminiscent of oyster shells. Refreshing and clean. Would pair well with seafood or green vegetables.
Notes on the Winemaker: Camille & Mathieu Apffel work 3.5 hectares of land spread across 3 cru regions of Savoie. Their pure and fresh mountain wines showcase local terroir and native grape varieties.
