André et Michel Quenard Chignin Blanc "Les Éboulis de la Savoyarde" '16

The hills of Torméry have long been known as a pass through the Alps between France and Italy. As a result, there have been vines planted in the area since Roman times. The hills and surrounding region were award SOC status in 1973, and are now home to one of the best appellations in the Savoie - Chignin-Bergeron. Andre Quenard started accruing vineyards in the area in 1944 (at just ten years old), eventually bottling his production in 1960. Michel joined his father in 1976, and the estate continued to grow. Guillaume is the third generation in the family to work with their wines. They farm their high elevation vineyards (300-400 meters) with respect for nature as their driving principal.

Quenard works with a handful of varietals native to the region of Savoie, including Jacquère. Jacquère is the most planted varietal of the region, known for its delicate aromatics and great transparency of terroir. The Savoie has beautiful soils given its proximity to the Alps. Limestone and marl dominate in Quenard’s vineyards. This wine is floral, minerally with soft tones of Meyer lemon and stone fruit. The limestone really lends itself to the acidic presence in the wine, making it a wonderful pairing with cheese. Traditionally, in Savoie, Jacquère is served with traditional fondue.
