En Route Pour l'Apero 2022
Grape Variety: Jacquère
Producer: Domaine Dupraz (Marc, Jérémy & Maxime Dupraz)
Region: Apremont, Savoie, France
Wild Scale: 2/5
Vegan friendly wine
Winemaking: Organic Jacquere grapes were harvested by hand. Fermentation with indigenous yeast in stainless steel tanks. No filtration or fining and just a small amount of sulphur added on bottling.
This Wine: As the name "On the way to the aperitif" suggests, this is a playful, easy drinking white wine that does not need to accompany food. Super fresh with a lively burst of minerals as it hits the palate. Very clean with restrained citrus and apple flavours.
Notes on the Winemaker: Domaine Dupraz is a relatively large (18.5 hectares) wine project in the Apremont department of Savoie. The Dupraz family reclaimed its historic winery after it had been owned by the local co-op for over 50 years. The wines produced here display amazing alpine freshness and very reasonable prices.
