2020 I Vicini Cortese
Born and raised in the Savoie, Jean-Yves Péron studied winemaking in Bordeaux in the late 90’s.
After school he spent some time working for Thiery Allemand in Cornas and later with Bruno Schueller in Alsace, both of whom he considers his mentors. All fruit is organic and biodynamic. The I Vicini series is Jean’s negoce project, where he sources grapes from Piemonte. This is Cortese from Piemonte - 2 week maceration as whole bunches, spontaneous fermentation in neutral oak with indigenous yeasts. Bright and fresh with a delicious lick of acid.
