Verdesse

2020
France
Savoie

Once the most widely grown grape variety in the Vallée du Grésivaudan of Isère, Verdesse dwindled to 2 hectares and was nearly lost until growers began replanting it a decade ago, therefore wines here are only around 3-7 years old. Planted in the “black shale” soils that are typical of the region at 520m elevation. Hand harvested, pressed by foot in basket, natural yeast fermented and aged in neutral French oak demi-muids for 11 months.
