Domaine Carrel Eugene Et Fils 'Jongieux' Blanc 2022 (Savoie, France)
Jacquère is a fun varietal unique to the Savoie region of the French Alps. These brisk cool climate wines have been famously characterized by wine writer Hugh Johnson as “drinking mountain air,” and this bottle by Domaine Eugene Carrel & Fils couldn’t be more exemplary of that.
Lovely fruit notes of citrus and pear on the palate meet a bright, juicy acidity and an incredibly mineral finish- like drinking cool water from a stony stream. Crisp and fresh, this stunning wine is as wonderful in the winter with rich hearty meals as it is in the summer with light seafood and a sunny patio.
Food Ideas: Ham & leek tarte, chicken parmesan, oysters, blood orange & winter greens salad with pistachios, crab rangoons with plum sauce, tartiflette
