This mixed case includes

2 x Crémant du Jura: Domaine Jean-Louis Tissot£0.00

A lively, great value bottle-fermented Crémant du Jura wine made from 100% Chardonnay.

2 x Savoie: Domaine de L'Idylle 'Cuvée l'Orangerie' 2018£0.00

Not often seen in the UK, this white wine from Savoie is a breath of mountain air. Made from the local alpine grape, Jacquère, it is dry and light and makes a marvellous aperitif – as clean and fresh as a snowflake!

2 x Alsace: Léon Beyer 'Réserve Personnelle' Pinot Blanc 2018£0.00

A full-bodied aromatic Alsace Pinot Blanc. It is a fleshy wine, with notes of apple, perfect with spicy cuisine.

2 x Jura Arbois: Trousseau Domaine Jean-Louis Tissot 2017£0.00

A light, spicy red from pure Trousseau - a grape which thrives on the slopes around Arbois. Best served with smoked (Montbéliard) sausage and potatoes mashed with Mont d'Or ...on diet 'cheat' days!

2 x Savoie: Domaine de L'Idylle Mondeuse 'Le Tithonien' 2018£0.00

The favoured red grape in the French Alps is Mondeuse and the Tiolliers' version is packed with bright berry scents and savoury red fruit flavours. It drinks well very lightly chilled, so bring on the cheese and charcuterie... or raclette on a chilly evening!

2 x Alsace: Léon Beyer 'Réserve Personnelle' Pinot Noir 2017£0.00

A crisp, ripe Alsace Pinot Noir with delicate summer berry scents and flavours supported by ripe tannins.
