OUR AREA

A UNIQUE REGION IN THE HEART OF THE SAVOY

Chignin combines the qualities needed to create great wines of character. Optimum exposure, steep slopes and limestone soil. This location is prodigal in wine culture, inseparable from our ancestral heritage. The place holds his part of history between Roman roads and ancient towers.
Our oldest wines have over a century of existence. We use naturally fermented wine, which excludes any addition of yeast. It seems essential to us in the context of a typical match-terroir. Malolactic fermentation, much sought-after for white wines, brings more complexity and better biological stability to wines. This essentially enables very low doses of sulfur when bottling. Only time makes his work to accompany the slow maturation of the wine and the winemaker assists this process more than he runs it. The promise of a famous great wine is foremost developed in the vineyard.

The area covers nearly 8 acres offering a wide variety of white and red grapes : The Bergeron with his golden yellow colour like honey and his toasty aroma of apricot ; The Mondeuse of deep red, revealing an aroma of undergrowth and his palette of wild flowers ; The Gamay a purple wine of friendship, pleasing and fruity ; The Jacquère mineral and fresh, delicately floral.
