Savoie ‘Jongieux’ Blanc (Jacquère) 2020 Chevallier-Bernard
Indigenous to Savoie, this is made from the Jacquere grape and has a bready, easy aroma with cashew nuts and hints of lemon. There is a nice balance on the palate, very gentle with some salty hints.
Chantal Chevallier met Jean-Pierre Bernard at the Lycée in Beaune. She originates from Savoie, whilst he was raised in the Beaujolais. Prior to 1996, Chantal worked as a vineyard consultant in the Beaujolais, whilst Jean-Pierre ran a négociant business in the region. Chantal’s parents Marcel and Francis, had moved from mixed farming in 1970 to specialise in vineyards, selling all their crop to a local négoce, which formed the business that Chantal and Jean-Pierre inherited in 1996.
