Abymes and Apremont are both made from 100% Jacquère in the same fresh natural style. The vineyards are only a stone's throw away from each other. Both are vinified exactly the same way using native yeast and elevage on the lees for 6 months in ovoid tanks to promote the perpetual movement of the lees during fermentation. So the real difference between the wines is which side of the proverbial tracks the vines are planted. Are you a purist who prefers the better-known Apremont, or more a trendsetter popping open a bottle of Abymes? Either, way you can't go wrong, as both are superb versions of the refreshing floral Jacquère grape.
