Les Rocailles Apremont Vieilles Vignes

Savoie

Description

A true earthly paradise nestled in the French Alps, Les Rocailles is owned and managed by boyhood friends and native Savoyards Guillaume Durand and Alban Thouroude, who purchased the estate and négociant business from Pierre Boniface upon his retirement in 2006. The wines have never been better at Les Rocailles!

Tasting Notes: This prestige bottling was made from the domaine’s oldest vines, and offers green apple, honeydew melon, and floral aromas with a stony, minerality. Dry and refreshing on the palate.

Serve With: Excellent on its own, with simple fish dishes, and with traditional specialties such as fondue and raclette.
