The Domaine Roland Grangier Savarin Blanc is made from a unique blend of Gamay and Jacquère. Although most commonly associated with the Beaujolais wine region, there are small amounts of Gamay planted to the granitic soils of the Northern Rhône. Lesser known, Jacquère is primarily cultivated in the eastern wine region of Savoie. Commonly planted in sub-alpine areas, Jacquère is known for its high acidity and herbaceous aromas.
The grapes for the Savarin were hand harvested from 30 year old vines, and manually sorted in the vineyard. Gently pressed, the wine was fermented and aged for 2 months in stainless steel tanks. A Moelleux (sweet) style of wine, it has 50 g/l of residual sugar.
Pale gold in the glass, this decadent white wine expresses floral aromas of candied lemons, nectarines, and honeysuckle. Medium bodied with citrusy flavours, crisp acidity on the palate balances the wines residual sugar. Less sweet than most dessert wines, it can be served either at the start or the end of the meal.
