Domaine Jean Yves Peron - 2018 La Petite Robe Blanche
After studying winemaking in Bordeaux in the late '90s and then working for Thierry Allemand in Cornas and Bruno Schuller in Alsace, Jean-Yves Péron has become a cult natural winemaker. Born, bred and based in Savoie, 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 schist-covered vineyards slope very steeply – hand-harvesting is basically mountain climbing! Fruit is all fermented naturally with no additives, expressing truthfully the amazing ancient Alpine terroir.
La Petit Robe Blanc is 100% Jacquère that saw 10 days maceration before being aged in oak. Unfined, unfiltered and, like all of Peron's cuvées, no sulphur added. It dances beautifully between saline minerality and white flowers. En pointe.
