    Winemaker Notes

    It has wonderful texture for a mountain wine, and shows notes of dried apricot, a touch of nut, minerals and white pepper. A crisp, dry finish completes the package. Delicious good value summer white. Made from 100% Jacquere.

    Domaine Jean-Pierre et Jean-François Quenard owns 15 hectares (37 acres) of vineyard around the village of Chignin. Jean-Francois Quénard took over for his father Jean-Pierre in 1987. Having studied at wine school in Burgundy with Yves Chéron from Domaine du Grand Montmirail in Gigondas, Jean-Francois has also studied winemaking in Bordeaux and California. Their domaine lies in one of the most beautiful spots of Chignin, next to the Tour Villard (part of the ruined Chateau de Chignin). There are a number of other wine producers in Chignin named Quenard, including Andre and Michel Quenard and Raymond Quenard. Seems like Quenard is the Smith and Jones of the Alps!

    Tucked up into the sheltered foothills of the Alps where conditions vary considerably from one spot to the next, the vineyards of Savoie are widely dispersed within three main growing districts. These are Seyssel, Bugey and general Savoie. Within these are 16 different cru vineyard areas.

    The region boasts a large number of unique indigenous grapes, incidentally unrelated to any nearby regions’ varieties. The styles here tend toward organic and traditional. In the past, the dynamic summer and winter tourist population consumed most Savoie wine before it could leave the area but the recent interest in esoteric varieties and natural, artisan wine has brought a renewed interest to Savoie.

    In Savoie's most northern vineyards near Lake Geneva, the Chasselas grape dominates. Moving south, the white grape known as Altesse (also sometimes called Roussette) is responsible for Roussette de Savoie as well as Roussette de Seyssel.

    Just north of Chambéry the white, Jacquère grows in the cru of Jongieux, along with Altesse, and Chardonnay. In the cru of Chautagne, the red grapes Gamay, Pinot Noir, and, especially, the local Mondeuse do well.

    Chambéry, once famous for its vermouth, contains the crus of Abymes, Apremont, Arbin, Chignin and Cruet.

    There are hundreds of white grape varieties grown throughout the world. Some are indigenous specialties capable of producing excellent single varietal wines. Each has its own distinct viticultural characteristics, as well as aroma and flavor profiles.
