    May 7, 2021 - A quality wine. Not sure if it's the grape or the terroir but it lacks the cut and focus on the palate to make it really great. But still very nice.

    February 27, 2021 - Lemon, saline mineral, gunpowder. Reminds me a lot of Jura Chardonnay, just a little lower acidity. Delicious!

    January 24, 2021 - Very clean and fresh on the nose with notes of elderflower and hay. On the palate dry and easy on the entry but not lacking acidity. Manages to be easy-going and intense at the same time. Nicely savory and tangy, very persistent and lip-smackingly tasty. A wonderful combination of freshness and richness, while being somewhat neutral in style. Pretty complete, delivering tons of drinking pleasure.

    January 16, 2021 - Fermented spontaneously with indigenous yeasts, aged in egg-shaped concrete tanks. 12% alcohol. Tasted blind.

    Pale and quite neutral straw-yellow color with a subtly youthful lime-green hue. Cool, fragrant and very Alpine nose that immediately takes me to somewhere around Jura-Savoie-Switzerland-Aosta. Aromas of white flowers, some crunchy green apple, light star fruit tones, a little bit of ripe pear, a hint of fresh whitecurrant and a touch of stony minerality. The wine is bright, intense and structured on the palate with a taste that emphasizes intense neutrality. The light yet not underwhelming flavors follow the nose: whitecurrants, fresh apple, some stony mineral tones, a little bit of tangy salinity, light floral notes of apple blossom and a hint of crunchy star fruit. The high acidity lends good sense of balance and structure to the wine. The finish is long, lively and refreshing with crisp, mouth-cleansing flavors of tart Granny Smith apple, some stony mineral tones, a little bit of gummy candy-like primary fruit, light sappy herbal tones, a hint of star fruit and a touch of tangy salinity.

    A nice, fresh and clean wine that was very much unlike the disappointing, heavily mousy vintage 2017 of Les Alpes I tasted last year. My first guess for the wine was Jacquère, due to its rather neutral and noticeably Alpine overall character. After that I guessed Altesse, which goes on to show that the wine definitely shows very typical Savoie character through-and-through. After that my guesses went all over the place, because I just didn't think of Gringet. Nevertheless, a nice, fresh and precise white wine that is still relatively youthful for its age. I'm not sure how much a neutral white wine like this can benefit from further cellaring, but at least the wine isn't going to be going downhill anytime soon. Perhaps a bit pricey for the quality at 30,15€, but not forbiddingly so.

    December 30, 2020 - I love this wine. Alpine herbal, stony nose. Palate has the same plus some light grapefruit flavors accompanied by a dose of alpine herbs that have a sort of grassy or hay note with a saline finish.
