Maison des Ardoisieres IGP Vin des Allobroges 'Silice' 2018
Domaine des Ardoisieres is headed by Champagne native Brice Ormont. The estate is comprised of 13 hectares across Savoie’s steep hills. Silice’ is a vibrant Jacquere and Chardonnay dominant blend, rounded out with 20% Mondeuse Blanc. The wine is zesty, refreshing, and shows flavors of citrus, lemon peel, and salt.
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.
