3.5 stars "Light yellow color, discreet floral nose, on the palate, dry, crisp, nutty with pear and apple aromas.The perfect wine to accompany a Fondue Savoyarde."

"There are few wine regions of France that have yet to be discovered by the wine drinking public en masse. The world is increasingly smaller, and it is not impossible these days to find a bottle of aged Maury in, say, a café in Akron. Lucky for us, there are still a few pockets of obscurity in French wine, and Chignin in the Savoie in the foothills of the French Alps is one of them! This scintillating example from Jean-Pierre and Jean-François Quenard relies on the jacquere grape for its freshness and delicacy. As an aperitif in the summer, or as a bright, lip-smacking counterpoint to rich raclette or fondue, this jaunty little wine will do much to put Savoie, Chignin and the brothers Quenard on the world wine map.
