2019 Vins d'Envie "Chasse au Dahu"
Region: Savoie, France
Grapes: Jacquere, Altesse, Chardonnay
We're headed high up in the mountains to look for the mythical creature, Chasse au Dahu. This is France's bigfoot and while he can be scary, this wine is not. It's absolutely gorgeous. Its light, clean, crisp and mineral, and it's gentle oily texture fills your mouth with happiness when you drink it. We couldn't stop smiling at first sip. It hails from high in the mountains of Savoie near the Swiss border and you'll want it on your table at every meal.
This project from Guillaume Lavie and Maxime Decoine is for the Beaujolais lovers, the Jura lovers, and the alpine wine lovers. They make natural wine that is true to the landscape of rigid rock and pine trees. They want to show the world what their region has to offer with as little intervention as possible. These wines are an expression of mountains of the Savoie.
Tasting notes: Crisp apple, pear, and lemon. Zesty and bright fruits blend with a hint of mountain air.
