Domaine Blard et Fils Monemvasia 2018 750ml
Domaine Blard et Fils
Another typical grape from the area but less common—Malvoisie is a grape varietal that can be confusing as it does not relates to other “Malvasia” know in Italy, Greece and others. As confusing as it is, Malvoisie in Savoie can be either referring to Pinot Gris or to Velteliner Rouge Precoce aka Fruhroter Veltliner (a natural crossing between Rote Veltliner and Sylvaner) but never to Malvasia.
In the case of Blard, it is the Velteliner Rosé which is used. This wine is all about the aromatics and the fruit, remaining very clean, precise and dry. It is not made every year, but depends on the fruit quality and quantity. Some years, Thomas and Jean-Noël do a sweet wine from the grape from “passerillage” (drying the grapes at the contact of ambient air to concentrate sugar and remove).
