Domaine des Ardoisieres IGP Vin des Allobroges 'Silice' 2016
Headed by Brice Ormont, Domaine des Ardoisieres comprises 13 hectares across Savoie’s steel, sloping hills. Originally from Champagne, Brice brings the same standard of excellent and quality to this 20 year old estate. ‘Silice’ is a vibrant Jacquere and Chardonnay dominant blend, rounded out with 20% Mondeuse Blanc. Zesty, crisp, and insanely refreshing; serve with tangy dressings and fresh seafood.
The reference point for greatness; the fount of most wine-specific vocabulary; and the nation most identified with viticulture and winemaking expertise. As awesome as Italy but a little snootier.
