Green apples, lemon balm and waxflower. Bright and fresh. The I Vicini series is Jean’s negoce project, I Vicini meaning “neighbour”, where he sources grapes from friends in Piemonte. This is Cortese that undergoes a 2 week maceration as whole bunches, spontaneous fermentation in neutral oak with indigenous yeasts. Born, bred and based in Savoie, studying all over with some of the greats but returning in 2004, Jean-Yves is patiently reviving ancient, forgotten vineyards in the French Alps. He tends his vineyards biodynamically, working across several micro-parcels containing Mondeuse, Jacquere, Altesse, and Roussanne. His vines are over a century old, and the incline of the vineyards in this region mirror something like Mosel, one is rather abseiling, rather than just grape-tending. Fruit is all fermented naturally with no additives, expressing truthfully the amazing ancient Alpine terroir. Since 2017 he has been experimenting with fruit from Northern Italy too, making for an increasingly exciting array of releases each year.
