Apremont is one of the most famous wine villages in Savoie, with stony limestone soil, the legacy of the disastrous landslide of 1248 when a significant portion of Mont Granier collapsed and slide into the valley below. Several villages were buried, and the event was so traumatic that the area lay undisturbed for centuries afterward. Vineyards – about the only crop hardy enough to grow in the rocks – were planted in the 15th century to commemorate the victims. Today, Jean Masson is the most famous winemaker in Apremont, and his old vine cuvées of the indigenous Jacquere grape are the gold standard for Savoie’s fresh, appley quaffer. This 2020 vintage is aged an extra year for more textural intensity, and starts with a bouquet of applesauce, honeycomb, white spring blossoms and tangelo. The palate follows up with crisp fall apple, blossoms, limestone and granite tinted minerality highlighting the bright, mouthwatering acidity. This is an ideal wine for charcuterie and fromage boards, for mussels, or squash based dishes.
