2011 Pierre Bonaface Apremont: From the Alps near the Swiss border, this white is dry, crisp and refreshing with a floral quality and light green apple flavors. Region: Savoíe, France. Price: $17. Goes with: Fondue, cheeses, roasted chicken. Why I chose it: A great fondue wine for the cooler season, plus it’s really something different from typical white wines.

For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case chosen by Stu Levine of Vino 100 in White Plains.
