The Bertholliers come from a long wine-making tradition; growers, owners and winemakers for several generations dating back to 1850. Today, brothers Denis and Didier own several parcels on the southernmost and steepest parts of the Savoie hills whose abrupt slopes, too difficult to work on, had been abandoned by their forefathers at the beginning of the 20th century. But this is the terrain where the grapes thrive. Made from 50 year-old vines of Jacquère, a native grapes of the Savoy region. Farmed organically on several parcels with different soil types, each vinified separately before blending with a very minimal dose of sulfites. Nose of white flowers and citrus fruit, white peach and lemon. Beautifully fresh, mouth-watering citrus and mineral palate with a certain salinity. Great as an aperitif, or with sushi, mussels, smoked fish, seafood and cheese fondues.
