Vineyards: 23.5 acres owned (18.5 acres Jacquere for Apremont and Brut, 2.5 acres Altesse for Roussette, 2.5 acres Chardonnay) and nearly 26 acres leased. The well-exposed, south/southeast-facing hillside vineyards are situated on the lower slopes of Mont Granier and are dominated by stony, clay/limestone soils. Grapes are also purchased as needed.
Viticulture & Vinification: Vines average between 20-25 years of age. Yields of 4.75 tons/acre. Unoaked – vinified at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. No malolactic fermentation.
Tasting Notes: Delicate and feather-light, it offers green apple and floral aromas on the nose. On the palate, it is dry and extremely refreshing, with crystal clear purity. Enjoy on its own, or pair with cheeses (especially fondue) or simple fish, chicken or pasta dishes.
