Domaine Vendange Jacquere La Cote Savoie 2021

A dry aromatic wine with fresh fruit notes of apple and
pineapple enveloped within a saline framework of
minerality and wet stone.
Producer Note
Owners Diane and Benjamin began bottling their own wines in 2015, from vineyards
that have been in the family for generations. Their 10-hectares of vines flourish on south
facing slopes in Combe de Savoie, on the foothills of the Massif des Bauges. The estate
is located on glacial moraines dating back 15,000 years, originating from the time
when the valley was one large glacier. The vineyard is managed with great respect for
tradition and terroir, using sustainable practices in order to gain the best and most
authentic expression of the Savoie. The combination of rich soils and favourable
climate, provide Domaine de Vendange with excellent conditions for their vine nursery.
The production process has been mastered throughout the generations, and they sell
a vast range of scions and rootstocks throughout France.
Vineyard
The Domaine de Vendange estate extends over 10 hectares, planted on south facing
slopes where the local Savoie grape varieties fully express their typicity. The 25-year old
Jacquère vines yield 65 hectolitres per hectare. The soils are formed of glacial moraine;
they are very young limestone soils made up of limestone scree, with layers of silty clay,
which produce elegant, fresh wines. The vines are planted at 400 metres’ elevation, yet
despite the altitude and mountainous location, the summers are surprisingly hot. This
distinctive microclimate encourages the grapes to reach optimum maturity with
concentrated juice, balanced by mountain-cool freshness. The vines are cultivated
using integrated agriculture practices, maintaining the greatest respect for terroir and
tradition. The focus is on green harvesting with pruning, debudding, trellising and leaf
stripping. All grapes are hand-harvested. In 2021, the domain moved into conversion to
organic status.
Winemaking
The grapes were gently pressed at a low pressure to retain the quality and the must
was cold settled overnight. The juice was fed by gravity into stainless steel tanks to
retain the varietal characteristics and the nuances of the Savoie terroir. Temperatures
were carefully maintained at 16°C during fermentation which took place with selected
yeasts. The wine did not undergo malolactic conversion to preserve the fruit aromas
and mineral characteristics of the wine. Vinified with a minimal intervention approach,
the use of sulphites was judicious. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks on its fine
lees for eight months.
Tasting Note
Wonderful aromatic complexity is highlighted by fresh fruit notes of peach and lime with
a delicate honeysuckle character. The light, lemony palate has distinctive minerality
and a lovely refreshing finish.
