2020 Sous le Roc Domaine Trosset
Fresh as snow melting in your mouth, this is a white that is not immensely characterful, but its whistle-clean well-water delicate freshness is a virtue in itself, crystalline and pure. L&S (May 2021)

There is something somewhat otherworldly about the ethereal wines of Apremont and the rare Jacquère grape. Imagine standing in the Savoie hills, with a glass of white wine in hand, chilled by the mountain breeze and not an ice bucket. Then take in its aroma of wildflowers, which are both on the breeze and in the glass. Its wondrous surroundings perfectly represent the pellucid liquid with its green-tinged fruit notes and bracing acidity. It’s also a hell of a lot more interesting and unique than a commonplace Savvie B. Embrace this elite aperitif experience and transport your palate to the foothills of the Alps.Matthew Jukes, Moneyweek (Oct 2021)
Fabien Trosset and his partner Chloé started out on their own in 2011, with vines from the estate of Jean-Louis Trosset, and then in 2013 also took on part of the vineyard of Joseph Trosset, giving them 16 hectares in all, mostly planted with the red grape Mondeuse, in the 'cru' of Arbin. The rest is white wine, made from Jacquère, Altesse and Roussanne.
The vineyard is on the south and south-east-facing slopes of the Bauges massif, between Chambéry and Albertville, on quite rich, deep limestone clay soils. It is worked by 'lutte raisonnée, with treatments kept to the absolute minimum, and is certified 'Haute Valeur Environmentale'.
