 Another wine from our new Savoie crush, the boys at Des Vins D'Envie, Maxime Dancoine and Guillaume Lavie, both of whom farm tiny biodynamic vineyards and make a small amount of wine for their own wine labels. They met just before the 2016 vintage and got to talking. They desperately wanted to find a way to create wines in the same natural style and from grapes that were organically farmed at prices their friends could afford. This electric Alpine white blend, named after the French Bigfoot character (Dahut = bigfoot) is the essence of summer in the mountains – bright, tart, high acid lemon and green apple sour patch kids up front, then a pristine wave of glacial water washes it all away, leaving your mouth tingly and thirsty for more.  Will have you running through lush, green fields singing Sound of Music lyrics….
