The Quenards—all three generations of them, collaborating in the vines and cellar—have mastered more than the simple Alpine quaffer. Their Chignin- Bergerons (the local rendition of Roussanne) have also begun to turn heads and raise the question of whether it is in fact here in the Alps, and not the Rhône Valley, that the grape performs best. Les Terrasses comes from a parcel so steep—even by Savoie standards—that, to make viticulture possible, they built terraces, which are rarely seen in the region. The result is sumptuously refined, flaunting a perfume of wildflowers and exotic fruit that persists gracefully on the palate. Decant it to fully savor this marriage of sun, stone, and fresh mountain air. –Anthony Lynch
