The opinion of the sommelierThe perfect wine to match cheese-based mountain cuisine. Apremont is widely consumed close to where it’s made as is goes along so well with recipes from the Alps. Indeed, its freshness balances the fat of the cheese and the fruity aromas lighten the powerful flavours of cheese and charcuterie.
TerroirApremont is the most famous wine of Savoie. It comes from a very specific terroir as the land vines are planted on first saw daylight as late as 1248 when Mount Granier collapsed. Therefore, the roots plunge in what used to be long ago a glacier.
Grape varietyThis wine is also an opportunity to discover a relatively rare grape variety: Jacquere. It gives fresh and tonic wines, with delightful tastes of fresh fruits and flowers. This seducing wine is a must taste for anyone who is looking forward discovering wines from Savoie.
VintageAs everywhere in France in 2018, vine’s enemy was mildiou, this disease that feeds on humidity so as to thrive. The first 6 months of 2018 were so rainy that it was at first one of the most humid vintage Savoie ever had. However, in the mountains, wind blows hard which helped to dry nature and eventually a lot of the harvest was spared from mildiou.
