Pierre Boniface Apremont Les Rocailes

This one has a great following in our store.  People do not remember the name, they just ask for the wine with the Swiss flag on the label.  It produced at the base of the Alps on the French side, but it is very close to the style of a Swiss wine.  The big difference is the price, it is impossible to find a good Swiss wine less than $30 now.

Pierre Boniface Apremont Les Rocailes...$15.99
Apremont is Pierre Boniface's signature wine, produced from the Jacquère grape at Les Rocailles, a true earthly paradise nestled in the French Alps.   This great value is the perfect introduction to the unique and distinctive wines of Savoie.
Tasting Notes: Delicate and feather-light, it offers green apple and floral aromas on the nose. On the palate, it is dry and extremely refreshing, with crystal clear purity.
Serve With: Enjoy on its own, or pair with cheeses (especially fondue or raclette) or simple fish, chicken, or pasta dishes.

Appellation:  Vin de Savoie AOP
Composition: 100% Jacquère.
