From some of the highest altitude vineyards in the world, this domaine’s vineyards are clay-based marls mixed with schist, a different composition from some of their other holdings, hence “Argile Blanc” (argile being the French word for clay). 40% Jacquère, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Mondeuse Blanche grapes are fermented in a mix of stainless steel tanks (two-thirds) and used French oak barriques (one-third). Like doing a face-plant with your mouth open on Mont Blanc, or sipping from crystalline springs—you get the alpine metaphors. The acidity/minerality and yellow fruit flavors pair perfectly with something decadent like a fatty salame or Comté fondue. A cult favorite among somms!
