Where and How?
This comes from biodynamically farmed Chasselas vines planted in the Haute-Savoie at the edge of Lake Geneva. The soils are composed of rich yellow marl and granite, with a limestone base, and some silex stones on the surface.
The wine was directly pressed, and fermented naturally in concrete eggs with malolactic also occurring.
The Winemaker: Les Vignes de Paradis
The man behind this domaine is Dominique Lucas, who was born and raised in Burgundy, where his family have parcels around the village of Pommard. He now tends his family’s vines in Burgundy, as well as his own domaine in the Haute-Savoie which he purchased in 2008, after moving there in 2002. He is a key figure in the Savoie natural wine movement, and is perhaps the most well-known grower and maker of high-quality Chasselas, helping to bring this variety to new heights.
