Frédéric Giachino has been producing wine in his domain for more than 20 years, utilising organic & biodynamic techniques for half of that time. Located in the Chartreuse Hills, the vines of Giachino grow along the limestone slopes of Mount Granier.
They are made only with local grapes, including Persan & Douce Noire, which were reintroduced by Frédéric. Other varieties include Jacquère, which is grown on six of the nine hectares of land, as well as Altesse, Gamay & Mondeuse. The care & attention given to the land, the grapes & the wines themselves can be tasted in every glass.
Made with 100% Jacquere grape from 25 year old vines on marl & limestone soil.
Dry, clean, mineral & steely with bracing acidity & fresh green fruit. We tried this recently & loved the fresh green apple, gooseberry & elderflower coming through.
