Le Jaja 2016
A Wine That
was one of the first bottles that put the incredible Savoie wine region on the map for us. With it's mineral, pine sap scent and almost umami-like flavours, this mentally transports us to the forests of the Alps. Rich yet fresh, this is the ideal food wine and goes with just about everything. Feeling adventurous with your pairings? This is the wine to experiment with.

Where and How?
This is the Savoyard variety, Jacquère, hence the fun name of Le Jaja. It comes from 30-year-old biodynamically farmed vines in the Chignin appellation, planted on alluvial and clay soils on limestone bedrock, on a south-east facing slope.
The Winemaker: Gilles Berlioz
It’s often the way that the most interesting growers weren't initially working in the field of wine. Gilles Berlioz of Domaine Partagé had always wanted to live rurally, but this first saw him cultivating flowers, rather than vines.
You only have to take a look at Gilles and wife Christine's vineyards to know that their purpose is as much about diversity as it is wine. And it’s their nurturing quality which is also the driving force behind the winery as a concept. For Domaine Partagé (translated literally as 'Shared Domaine'), it has always been about people over profit.
