Tasting Notes

This wine abounds with charm, purity and vibrancy. Medium to lighter in body, it is focused on minerality and supremely easy to drink, with tart blackberry, cherry, and earthy spices.  The texture of silky tannins and crisp acidity with lively energy evokes the cool climate of the Savoie.

WINE INFORMATION

Located at the foothills of the Bauges massif, and bordering neighbouring Switzerland and Valle d’Aosta in Italy, the organically farmed vineyards of Domaine Adrien Berlioz in the Savoie region are as picturesque as you might imagine.

Berlioz took over the family vineyards in 2006, two hectares located near a small village called Chignin at 390 meters above sea level. With plenty of hard work alongside the pursuit of purity and a certified biodynamic approach to farming, he has grown the vineyard to 5 hectares, transforming it into one of the region’s most prestigious domaines.

The hard work starts with the incredibly steep slopes the vines are planted on – some of which boast an inclination of 50%, on soils comprised of rock scree and calcareous clay. Planted here are a mixture of the Savoie’s best known varieties including the red grapes Mondeuse, Douce Noire and Persan, all farmed biodynamically, and worked by hand with the help of horses. There is no chance of using tractors at these angles! The wines are vinified with minimal intervention using natural winemaking techniques including very little sulfur.
