While in Montana last week, I made a stop into Belgrade Liquor, which has an exceptionally curated selection of wines.
I was looking for a “crisp white” for a hot day, and the staff somm suggested this new-to-me, variety: Apremont. It’s from Savoie, a region in Western France just South of Geneva at the base of the French Alps.
I would describe as having a similar structure to Chenin Blanc : mouth watering acidity and citrus flavors (more lime than lemon) but with more minerality and white floral aromatics. A very good wine, that made an apt accompaniment to this meat and cheese board, and as it turns out, an appropriate pairing for the scenery as well.
Price: Around 12-14, and for that, a killer price – though it seemed bottle shops were a couple bucks lower than back in Minnesota.
