Wines of Apremont are produced exclusively from the local grape called Jacquere, a mouth watering varietal with high-acidity. Shows aromas of green apples, pears, and freshly cut grass. The palate displays clean minerality, citrus notes, salty, pink grapefruit and peachy-chew. This area of Savoie high in the Alps also produces one of my favorite goat cheeses, "Tomme de Savoie". It's a little bloomy round. (Bloomy refers to the Penicillium Candidum , the mold that encases this gem). It's paste is mushroomy and tastes like lemon, fresh dirt, and a tang that only this Apremont could wash down.
13 Lunes is meant to be enjoyed young, this is a crisp, refreshing wine with authentic alpine character. Sylvain harvests by hand and ferments in fiberglass on the lees with indigenous yeasts. The wine is bottled the following spring after a light fining and filtering with a total SO2 that is under 30mg/L.
