Thomas Finot is a bit of a quiet superstar in the Savoie. He is reviving local varieties such as the white Verdesse and the reds Persan and Etraire de la Dhuy as well as working with the appellation's permitted grapes including Jacquere, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Here we have his Verdesse, of which he owns 2ha of the worldwide total of 5ha planted of this rare grape. 

 

High acid keeps the medium - full body fresh, but you can seriously taste the alpine sun here! Lemon, marmalade, grape, green apple, almond croissant and ginger cream crunch biscuits reads my tasting notes from when I sunk a bottle of this last weekend. I love rich and generous wines like this, and it'll love you as well if you give it a decant 30-60mins before drinking.
