Delicate and lightly smooth, this Jacquère if a fine example of this region's iconic domain's expert vinification. More info

The cuvée Silice is the result of the vinification of organic grapes bought from neighbouring vineyards. These come from the vieilles vignes of Jacquère grown on the slopes of the commune of Apremont. The berries have been vinified naturally and fermentation is triggered by native yeasts. The wine has then been aged for nine months on its lees in vats in order to preserve the freshness of its aromatic notes. On tasting, it has a wonderful pale hue with green tints, a delicate aromatic bouquet (white flowers, fresh almonds) and a delicate and lightly smooth palate.

Vin de Savoie Coteaux d'Apremont Silice Maison des Ardoisières serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Brie de Meaux, Diots (saucisse de Savoie au vin blanc), Gratins de poireaux.

Information about domain Ardoisières (Domaine des)

The Domaine des Ardoisières was created ex nihilo in 1998 on land that had been planted with vines in Roman times, but which had not produced wine for centuries. Michel Grisard, one of the leading Savoyard producers, was the driving force behind the project for a long time, before handing it over to the current manager, Brice Omont. The vineyard is cultivated according to biodynamic principles and vinification is extremely natural with as little intervention as possible. The property produces three white wines and two reds. The "Schiste" cuvée (7,000 bottles) is produced from four traditional Savoyard varieties: Jacquère, Malvoisie, Roussanne and Mondeuse Blanche. The vines are grown on spectacular south-facing terraces, with small yields of 25 hl/ha. Vinification, with indigenous yeasts is carried out in barrels which have already been used for three to five wines.
