Domaine Giachino Abymes Monfarina Savoie 2010

Domaine Giachino Abymes Monfarina Savoie 2010:  Nicknamed “mountain Muscadet” by importer Eric Solomon, the 2010 Abymes is 100% Jacquere planted on organically farmed limestone soils that are riddled with sand.  Sparkles with a glassy sheen of brilliant white gold, and showcases piercing acidity with flavors that call to mind lime, oyster shells, and hard cheese rind.  Perhaps slightly oxidative in style, this is a serious, mouthwatering white that will pair well with most cow’s milk cheeses, oysters and other shellfish.  11% alc.  $16.  Drink now-2015.  (88 points)
