Roger Labbe makes this Abymes white with 100% Jacquère, a varietal that grows especially well in the Savoie region of the French Alps. While the appellation allows 10% of other grape varieties to be added, Labbe chooses to feature the purity of this grape. The soil is mostly argilo/calcaire with large stones, from years of avalanches. Labbe and his team control yields by strategically de-budding vines in the spring. This labor intensive practice is rare to find at this price point. Grass grows in the rows between the vines to fertilize and oxygenate the soil - this practice also forces the vines' root systems to go deeper for nourishment and soak up the terroir of the subsoil. Non-oak vinification preserves both varietal typicity and freshness, and indigenous yeasts are used in fermentation. We tasted and loved the freshness of this white. Utterly dry and clean, this will be a zingy and refreshing white for summer sipping, or to pair with fresh seafood with lots of lemon!
