WINE OF THE WEEK: Domaine Vendange Jacquère La Côte 2020, Savoie, France

£14.50, The Daily Drinker

Bright, breezy and light as a feather, this is a delightful example of the Alpine purity and flavour of the Savoie region's Jacquère grape. It's as pale as snow with just a hint of green, smells of spring blossoms, jasmine and summer orchards and glides across the palate in ripples of pear and citrus fruit and mountain-stream stones. It's quietly insistent in flavour, soft textured and effortlessly fresh. You could drink it alongside simple salads and fish dishes, but its prime role is as a perfect aperitif. 11.5%


The 10-hectare Domaine Vendange is in on south-facing slopes in the foothills of the Massif des Bauges and was created in 2015 when Benjamin and Diane Vendange started bottling their own wines from the vineyards that generations of the family had cultivated.
