Domaine Eugène Carrel Rosé Blend Vin de Savoie Jongieux 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The Jongieux Blanc, made from the native Jacquere grape, exemplifies Hugh Johnson's characterization of this varietal: "you are drinking bottled mountain air." Working with fully ripe, yet delicate grapes with a low natural sugar/alcohol level, Carrel uses a pneumatic press to extract flavor and aromas, and ferments in stainless steel tanks at lower temperatures. He blocks the malolactic fermentation and keeps a small amount of the wine’s natural CO2 to further enhance its freshness and vitality. Bottling takes place in January, after the wine is stabilized in the naturally cold Alpine ambiance.

Thrilled to have found this wine and this region! A crisp, zesty white, with mineraly tones that belie the mountainous terroir. Good acidity, fun wine.

Enjoyed the crispness, minerality, and acidity with shrimp and grits; even better with this dish when add just a splash of riesling.
