  1. Jean-Francois Quenard Chignin Ad’OP: Savoie (100% Jacquere; www.JFQuenard; 11.5%; CharlesNealSlctns) Jean-Pierre et Jean-Francois Quenard/Chignan 2018: Light yellow color w/ tiny bubbles; very ragrant/floral/carnations/alpine flowers bit stony/mineral very lovely nose; very tart/lean/lemony/tangy some floral/carnations quite stony/mineral/grapefruity bit eviscerated flavor; very long very floral/alpine flowers/carnations rather stony/mineral fairly lean finish; very classic Alpine white but more interesting than most Jacqueres. $17.00 (KK)

A wee BloodyPulpit:

  1. Both of these were pretty classic Savoie Jacqueres. I slightly preferred the Quenard because of its stronger aromatics.
