Domaine des Ardoisières Argile Blanc Allobroges St. Pierre de Soucy Jacquère Blend 2015 (1500ml)

$73

Today the 13 hectare Domaine des Ardoisieres is in the capable hands of Brice Ormont, a Champagne native who has found his calling in the breathtaking terroir of the Savoie, where the vines sit on steep, terraced slopes at the foot of Mont Blanc. The extreme setting and growing conditions provide for some miraculous wines that we can't seem to get enough of. Their importer likens drinking these wines to andldquo;tasting freshly squeezed juice running off a glacierandrdquo; and that's about as accurate a description as we've come across. The wines have a freshness and clarity married to a drive, complexity and intensity that is unreservedly world class. Argileandnbsp;Blanc comes from west facing 40-year-old vines ofandnbsp;Jacquere, Chardonnay andandnbsp;Mondeuseandnbsp;Blanche. This is aged for 9 months in 1/3 oldandnbsp;barriquesandnbsp;and 2/3 in tank. The wine is bright, flinty, nervy and intensely mineral. Think top quality Chablis with a bit more texture.
