You’ll find the wine light in colour and fresh, with subtle floral and citrus aromas - less upfront fruit than the Les Abymes but the same easy drinking 11.5% alcohol. With more complexity than most Jacquère (due to the extra time on lees), the delicious honeyed characters open up to reveal a minerally, almost Chablis-like wine. You know you’re drinking Euro.
Subtle and easy drinking, its well balanced acidity makes this wine crisp enough to drink on its own, but with texture and richness enough to be good company at the dinner table. Although it’s hard to find in Australia, there’s no surprise it’s such a popular bistro wine in France.
I love this with whole baked trout and anything with dill, or with a plate of homemade gnocchi.
