Details

This is a lovely and fresh example of Mondeuse, one of the more recognisable grapes from the area, readily available in any good ski resort. It is always pretty acceptable stuff but at this quality level, it is simply lovely wine. Next to a fruity wine, its hardy, carthorse like flavours seem quite rustic but they go very well with a really good Pizza or some herby mountain Sausage or anything fatty and hearty where the varieties natural acidity cuts through. This new vintage is lovely and fresh and will age very well.

Domaine Giachino was created in 1998 when Frédéric took over the 1,5 hectares family estate from his grandfather Marius Genton. Later joined by his brother David, they progressively enlarged the estate to 9 hectares and enriched their vineyards with new grape varieties particular to their area of the Savoie. Their values and philosophy made a switch to natural and organic methods inevitable and this they did in 2006. The vineyards of Domaine Giachino are in Savoie, not far from Chambéry, on the hillsides of Mont Granier. The soils are moraine, clay and limestone; a specific geology to the area and source of the uniqueness of their delicious organic wines.
