Jean Perrier et Fils Apremont 'Cuvée Gastronomie' Pinot Noir, Vin de Savoie, France 2021
Founded in 1853, Gilbert Perrier and his son are the fifth and sixth generation to make wine in this picturesque Alpine region. The domaine has slowly expanded over the generations, but maintaining quality has always been the priority. Vineyard work is sustainable; grapes are hand-harvested and gently vinified in stainless steel tanks. It is very difficult to find tasty and balanced Pinot Noir for under $20, but this certainly delivers.
The wines are classic, crisp, and pure Savoie character.
Pairing: Cheese plate, any occasion
Grape: Pinot Noir
