Biodynamic Savoie!
Dear Friends

The Savoie region has been experiencing a winemaking renewal for a few years: some estates have raised the flag colours high thanks to their motivation and skills to reveal a terroir of high quality.

Domaine Giachino located at the heart of the Parc Regional de la Chartreuse is one of them which we have been distributing for a few years. They have become famous thanks to the quality of their wines and their respect for nature.

Frédéric Giachino took over the family estate in 1988 and took the organic leap in 2006 before being joined by his brother David in the adventure later on and more recently by his son Clément in 2015. Their more recent biodynamic practice came naturally and has helped to improve the quality even more and their environment too. All of their wines have got the Demeter certification and they are great!

Another winemaker to keep in mind: Gilles Berlioz from the «Domaine Partagé» in Chignin. A craftman who is one of the best in the area and who makes this amazing Chignin-Bergeron « Les Filles » made from 100% Roussanne grape!

They are available to sample for free among the 32 wines open for tasting every single day we are open.

See you soon!

Black Giac Mondeuse 2018
24.90 frs par bouteille
✩ Buy 5 and get the 6th for free until 2nd October ✩
Mondeuse is the main red grape variety from Savoie. It is the cousin of the Syrah grape and therefore has a spicy character too. On the palate the wine exhibits less alcohol than Syrah and the balance is very elegant. This 2018 offers a superb intense nose with just enough tannins. Enjoy with grilled meals.

Chignin-Bergeron « Les Filles » Gilles Berlioz 2018
52.90 frs par bouteille
Roussanne is also known as Bergeron in Savoie hence the name of the appellation. This gorgeous bottle has got a long aging potential and is produced from a Southern exposure plot. The fruit matures slowly there and provides the wine with a dense body and aromatics of apricot, honey, hawthorn and on the palate a subtle balance of roundness and freshness. A great white to enjoy with food!
