Tasting Notes

The aromas of this wine are exciting: Golden Delicious apple, walnut, pear, and an Alpine meadow. Flavors are delicious and delicate. There’s floral sweetness, orange zest, mineral notes, and more. Complex and very enjoyable, it is medium in body and length.

The Quenard domaine was founded three generations ago in the 1930s; although it gradually grew, most of the wine was sold off in bulk. In 1960, André Quenard began bottling wine under his own name, and in 1976,his son Michel joined the domaine. Today the family owns 22 hectares of steep terraced south-facing slopes on the Coteau de Torméry around Chignin, growing Jacquère, Bergeron (the local name for Roussanne), Mondeuse, Gamay, and Pinot Noir. The Quenards are regarded as among the finest producers in the region. This bottling is one of ten imported by Kermit Lynch; all are made from sustainably grown fruit. Its grapes come from a four-hectare parcel on limestone scree; vines are over 70 years old and harvested manually. Grapes are fermented at controlled temperature in stainless steel. The wine rests on its fine lees for nine months before bottling.
