France  Savoie 

Just as Chasselas is for Alpine Switzerland, Jacquère is the classic "terroir transparent" white of Savoie. Jacquère is a quite fresh and youthful wine, enjoyable as an apéritif or with traditional white wine pairings.

You will find the village of Chignin nestling at the foot of the Les Petits Bois and surrounded by vineyards. The grape in this single varietal cuvèe is Jacquère, from 50 year old vines on limestone. Biodynamic expression of this grape which is low intervention and managed on the lunar cycle. 

A truly versatile wine that works with a variety of Savoie dishes like raclette, fondue and tartiflette but also at home with British fish and chips and sushi!
