Dracaena WinesWelcome to our next installment of #WinephabetStreet. In this series, Debbie Gioquindo and I will be working our way through the wine world by way of the alphabet. Each month we will take the next letter in the alphabet and learn the characteristics and history of the grape, as well as suggested wine pairings. So uncork, unscrew or saber that bottle and connect with us as we chat, laugh and drink wine all in a laid back atmosphere.

J is for Jacquère

Jacquère is the Savoie most widely planted grape variety. It accounts for 50% of all the plantings. It produces an early-drinking, low alcohol, high acidic dry wine. You can expect flavors of white floral, pear, white peach, grapefruit with minerality and flintiness.

Jacquére grows among and on massive limestone blocks. The limestone blocks are the result of a month long intense rainstorm that occurred in November of 1248.  On the 24th, the giant slabs of limestone that were on the top of the mountain gave way in a massive rock slide. They fell seven kilometers into the valley below and landed completely burying five villages and its inhabitants and livestock.
