les Oeillets 2012

Jean-Yves has patiently revived almost forgotten vineyards planted in schist in the French Alps situated 1,400 feet above a glacial valley. Made with skin contact from his younger Jacquère vines lower on the slope, this wine weighs in at just 10.5% alcohol. It’s gently oxidative, round in the mouth, infused with mountain herbs, and has a fresh lemony brightness.
