Title on all wine passes to the buyer at the time of purchase in the state of California. If you require that your wine be shipped, you authorize Bay Grape LLC to engage a common carrier to deliver the wine on your behalf. IF YOU CHOOSE TO SHIP YOUR WINE TO A NON-RECIPROCAL STATE, YOU ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR COMPLYING WITH YOUR STATE'S LAWS REGARDING ALCOHOL SHIPMENTS.
You must be 21 years of age to order or receive alcoholic beverages from Bay Grape LLC. Any shipments containing alcoholic beverages are sent with an "Adult Signature Required" sticker, and the common carrier that delivers our merchandise is required to ask and check for identification upon delivery. This means that you will have to be present at the time of delivery.
Because we have no control over the temperature conditions at any 3rd party carriers' warehouses, we always attempt to deliver wines to our 3rd party carrier at the beginning of each week so that you can receive your wine before the weekend. As a result, your wine may not be delivered to our 3rd party carrier the day that you place your order. Please understand that during business hours, your orders are immediately packaged and scheduled for delivery, but may be delayed until ideal conditions for shipment arise. You are reminded that various states impose limitations on the quantity of alcoholic beverages which may be purchased and brought into their jurisdiction without requiring the purchaser, the seller or the shipper to possess certain licenses or permits. Bay Grape LLC does NOT, as a condition of sale, assume any obligation nor bear any responsibility whatsoever for applying for or obtaining any such permits or licenses. Therefore, you are strongly advised to investigate such limitations and to determine the manner in which alcoholic beverages may lawfully be brought into states other than California. You are responsible for all applicable excise, use and sales taxes due to your state related to the purchase of any taxable goods.
Bay Grape LLC makes no representation to the legal rights of anyone to ship or import wines into any state outside of California. The Buyer is solely responsible for the shipment of wines and is responsible for any loss or damage to goods once they have left our premises. By placing an order, you authorize Bay Grape LLC to act on your behalf to engage a common carrier to deliver your order to you.
Paul Gadenne La Debaroule! Jacquere Chignin 2020
White grape: Jacquère (shjahh-KEHR) - The name is thought to have stemmed from the name of the family who first introduced the grape to the Savoie region; it’s synonym “Robinet” means “tap”—a reference to how productive this vine is.
Synonyms: Cugnette, Jacquerre, Jacquère, Martin-Cot, Molette de Montmélian, Plant des Abîmes, Raisin des Abîmes, Redin, Robinet, Roussette (though NOT the same as Roussette/Altesse from the Savoie as featured last quarter! Confusing, huh?)
Hails from: Savoie, France
Viticultural Notes: vigorous producer with high yields, early budding and late ripening, and prone to black and botrytis bunch rots
Stylistic Notes: fresh, clean, high-acid, light-bodied and dry wines with a signature alpine-herb and mineral quality
Wine-Specific Notes: We must give credit and high praise to critic Natalie Earl who pegged this wine as being like “a soft embrace from a powdery snowman—bracing, fresh and enlivening.” That note is too good to not quote. Winemaker Paul Gadenne fermented this with native yeasts in stainless steel tanks and let the wine rest for eight months on the lees to add texture to the inherent acidity before bottling unfined/unfiltered.
Pairing Suggestions: smoked trout toast with scrambled eggs and herbs; almond chicken salad; fondue parties
