Region: IGP Collines Rhodaniennes
Type: White Wine
When Pierre-Andre and Anne started to farm in the out of the way Coteaux-Du-Gier somewhere between Lyon and Clermont-Ferrand wine wasn’t a priority, instead it was grains, fruits and dairy cows, as well as a tiny production of wines. This kept going until the early 2000's when a drop in milk prices forced them to rethink a few things, and they decided to take some of their most interesting land and convert it to vineyards. What didn’t change was the commitment to be farmers first, to work the land honestly and responsibly and have the product reflect that, be it wine or milk.
This is a highly aromatic, light-to medium-bodied white with great minerality. The Chardonnay and Viognier are grown biodynamically on schist soils. Notes of crunchy apple/pear, lemon pith and grapefruit spice, with a touch of white blossoms.
