Domaine des Côtes Rousses 'Armenaz', Savoie, France 2020
We recently had this wine at one of our favorite local restaurants and were blown away. It's everything we love about wines from the Savoie, with a touch of oil-ness at the finish that is very welcomed. Nicolas Ferrand is relatively new to winemaking but his talent is evident. Armenaz is named after the mountains where Nicolas Ferrand's grandparents would graze their cows in the summer, and his wines quickly transport you there.
Pairing: Cod croquettes, crab toast, simply prepared white fish
Soil: Limestone clay
