Domaine Jean Masson & Fils, "Nicolas" 2020 - Apremont
Jean-Claude Masson is without doubt the champion of Jacquère. The fifth generation of Masson winemakers, he has been managing this 10-hectare estate located in the small Savoyard village of Apremont, south of Chambéry, since 1984. He works his vineyard with passion, harvests at the right time and ages the wines in stainless steel tanks, depending on the terroir - and his mood. His wines offer a fullness and richness rarely seen in Savoie. They are capable of evolving and gaining in complexity for more than a decade, while retaining the incisive and fluid character of the Jacquère.
Pure, with a certain chalkiness, this wine offers scents of fresh herbs, a hint of bramble bud and tangy citrus notes. Very expressive, with a touch of pepper, it is lively and airy, with a light saline touch on the finish.
