Nicolas Gonin Verdesse, IGP Isère, France 2019
Located in the Savoie, a region gaining attention for the natural acidity and freshness found in its native varietals. Nicolas Gonin, a rising star of the region, made it his mission to find the rare grapes in over looked vineyards around France. The vineyards are all certified organic, and fermentation and aging are exclusively in enamel tank in order to give a true, unobstructed taste of these ancient varieties. This is a fuller bodied floral wine that develops bursts of apricot on the its second day open. A really fun, different, and delicious wine to explore from the Savoie. If you like Viognier, try this.
Pairing: Stinky cheese, roasted white meat
Viticulture: Certified Organic
