From the mountanous Savoie, a wine to share with friends. Perfumed red with blackcurrent charcter. Ripe, chewy tannins with juicy vibrant acidity. Finishes dry.
Back in 2017, Domaine Giachino didn’t produce enough Gamay and had to blend it with some Mondeuse. The result was so good, fresh, youthful and textured that the estate added this blend to the range.
Grapes are handpicked. Whole bunch maceration in stainless steel vat. The maceration process lasts for ten to twenty days depending on the vintage. During this period they pump the wine daily, taking care not to crush the grapes. Following the maceration process, they rack the wine out of vats and aged in barrels (600 litre capacity) on the lees, until bottling.
