Savoie, France (located in the French Alps) is home to some of the best white wines. Vines are planted on hillsides facing south east, giving the perfect amount of sun exposure creating a warmer microclimate. Fabien Trosset and his partner Chloe took over from their long lineage of winemakers in 2011 and have been expanding their estate ever since. Domaine Fabien Trosset is currently made up of 16 hectares, 13 of which produce red wines while 3 produce white. ‘Le Roc’ is 100% Jacquère, a white grape that is actually the most widely planted grape in the region of Savoie. Each grape is hand harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks. They are then aged on lees for 8 months, 80% in stainless steel tanks and 20% in Tava amphoras (terracotta clay pots made for aging wine). This white wine is very fresh with notes of lemon, citrus, minerality, and some nuttiness. This pairs perfectly with a garlic lemon seasoned trout or fried catfish.
