Price
€35

Deep ruby red color. Complex nose with ripe cherries, juicy blackberries and blackcurrants. In addition, notes of balsamic can be detected and through the oak influence vanilla and toast. The wine develops some sultry aromas of marzipan, caramel and 'game'. On the palate, the wine is sultry and ripe in onset with a full body and ripe tannins that support it beautifully. In the aftertaste, aromas of ripe fruit and caramel can be found.

In the south-west of Savoie lies the village of Jongieux, where Antoine and his parents make congenial, unaffected wines from local grape varieties. For whites these are jacquère and roussette and for reds gamay and mondeuse. The vineyards are situated on poor limestone slopes at about 400 meters altitude. The area has even recently been classified as a national heritage site because of its beauty. And for 7th generation Antoine, preserving this landscape is one of the most important aspects and therefore the domaine is certified 'Haute Valeur Environnementale', which means they are super sustainable.
