Tasting Notes

The "Argile Blanc" showcases an abundance of alpine tension and refreshment with flavours of white flowers, orchard fruits and green almonds.

Estates like Domaine des Ardoisières prove that Savoie can produce wines with as much quality as Burgundy or Jura. The Domaine was born from the replanting, in 1998, of the Cevins hillside: six hectares of mica schists along terraces between Albertville and Moutiers, undertaken by Michel Grisard. In 2003, to assist Grisard, Brice Omont, agricultural engineer from Champagne, invested in the project and now (since 2008) finds himself at the head of an Estate which now comprises 16 hectares. Biodynamic viticulture is championed here, the slope can reach a 70% incline, and the yields are very low. 

The "Argile Blanc" showcases an abundance of alpine tension and refreshment with flavours of white flowers, orchard fruits and green almonds. The palate contains crystalline purity, showing white peach and nectarine fruits, grapefruit and lemon peel acidity, and a crushed stone finish. It can be paired with raclette cheese, roast poultry, rich oysters, crayfish, scallops and white fish. You can drink it now with a 30-minute decant before serving or cellar it up until 2028+. 40% Jacquere, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Mondeuse Blanche.
