Producer Note
Owners Diane and Benjamin began bottling their own wines in 2015, from vineyards
that have been in the family for generations. Their 10-hectares of vines flourish on
south facing slopes in Combe de Savoie, on the foothills of the Massif des Bauges.
The estate is located on glacial moraines dating back 15,000 years, originating from
the time when the valley was one large glacier. The vineyard is managed with great
respect for tradition and terroir, using sustainable practices in order to gain the best
and most authentic expression of the Savoie. The combination of rich soils and
favourable climate, provide Domaine de Vendange with excellent conditions for their
vine nursery. The production process has been mastered throughout the
generations, and they sell a vast range of scions and rootstocks throughout France.


Vintage
The 2019 vintage was characterised by a very warm, dry summer which led to an
earlier harvest than in previous years. The excellent conditions resulted in balanced
fruit, with good maturity and concentration of colour and flavour in the wines.


Vineyard
The Domaine de Vendange estate extends over 10 hectares, planted on south
facing slopes where the local Savoie grape varieties fully express their typicity. The 25-
year old Jacquère vines yield 65 hectolitres per hectare. The soils are formed of
glacial moraine; they are very young limestone soils made up of limestone scree,
with layers of silty clay, which produce elegant, fresh wines. The vines are planted at
400 metres’ elevation, yet despite the altitude and mountainous location, the
summers are surprisingly hot. This distinctive microclimate encourages the grapes to
reach optimum maturity with concentrated juice, balanced by mountain-cool
freshness. The vines are cultivated using integrated agriculture practices,
maintaining the greatest respect for terroir and tradition. The focus is on green
harvesting with pruning, debudding, trellising and leaf stripping. All grapes are handharvested. In 2021, the domain moved into conversion to organic status.


Winemaking
The grapes were gently pressed at a low pressure to retain the quality and the must
was cold settled overnight. The juice was fed by gravity into stainless steel tanks to
retain the varietal characteristics and the nuances of the Savoie terroir.
Temperatures were carefully maintained at 16°C during fermentation which took
place with selected yeasts. The wine did not undergo malolactic conversion to
preserve the fruit aromas and mineral characteristics of the wine. Vinified with a
minimal intervention approach, the use of sulphites was judicious. The wine was
aged in stainless steel tanks on its fine lees for eight months.


Tasting Note
Wonderful aromatic complexity is highlighted by fresh fruit notes of peach and lime
with a delicate honeysuckle character. The light, lemony palate has distinctive
minerality and a lovely refreshing finish.
