Bhilar, Bhilar Blanco 2019


The wine is very fresh, precise and mineral. The acidity of this mountain white wine is impressive, 50% malolactic conversion adds some creamy notes to the fresh, zesty flavors of citrus and orange peel.

In the south-west of Savoie lies the village of Jongieux, where Antoine and his parents make congenial, unaffected wines from local grape varieties. For whites these are jacquère and roussette and for reds gamay and mondeuse. The vineyards are situated on poor limestone slopes at about 400 meters altitude. The area has even recently been classified as a national heritage site because of its beauty. And for 7th generation Antoine, preserving this landscape is one of the most important aspects and therefore the domaine is certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale', which means they are super sustainable.
