2007 Apremont

Cheeses, pates, crackers and salami for dinner last night so I opened something from off the beaten path, a 2007 Pierre Boniface, Les Rocailles, Apremont, Vin de Savoie. It took longer to type that name than it did to get the cork out of the bottle.

The nose was all minerals and herbs with only a hint of grapefruit. The taste had some citrus to it but was mostly like licking a piece of limestone or some river rocks. Good acid made this tart and fresh and very appealing. The acid carried the finish along for a good ride. Refreshing, uncomplicated, and very good.
