Wine Guide

Domaine de la Rosiere Jongieux Blanc


“The Jongieux Blanc is made entirely from the native Jacquère grape. It exemplifies Hugh Johnson’s characterization of this varietal: “you are drinking bottled mountain air.”The vineyards are south-west facing slopes with decomposed limestone soils. The vines average 25 years of age. The grapes are hand-harvested at the end of harvest period, when it attains merely 10 to 11 degrees of alcohol. Working with fully ripe, yet delicate grapes with a low natural sugar/alcohol level, Carrel uses a pneumatic press to extract flavor and aromas, and ferments in stainless steel tanks at low temperatures. He blocks the malolactic fermentation and keeps a small amount of the wine’s natural CO2 to further enhance its freshness and vitality. Bottling takes place in January, after the wine is stabilized in the naturally cold Alpine ambiance. It offers unique flavors of citrus, white flowers, minerals with elegant length. Around 1000 cases produced annually.” – VOS Selections
