50% Gamay & 50% Mondeuse from Savoie, France. A blend of lightness and character. The Gamay gives this crunchy, red fruit side. While Mondeuse brings spice, a touch of silky tannins, and black fruit. There is also a floral and herbaceous side giving the impression of a walk in Savoyard land!
The Giachino estate manages its vineyards and produces wines based on organic methods. Wine producers for over 20 years, the vineyards are based in the Chartreuse regional park in the department of Savoie. In 1988, Frédéric took over the 1.5 hectares of vines that had been maintained by his grandfather, Marius Genton. Since then, the area has been entirely dedicated to grape production.
The estate comprises various small, organically farmed vineyards on the slopes of Mount Granier, encompassing the communes of Chapareillan, les Marches and Aprement. The complete conversion to organic farming in 2006 was the outcome of a long process.
