About the Wine
If you like exploring the Wide World of Wine, this is for you. Savoie is an underappreciated region and has been making some of the best value for money wine from France. Jacquere is at home in this alpine region, and makes cool, fresh and lean whites.
It's an easy drinking wine, with a taut structure but instantly approachable. There is something deeply versatile here - it can be drunk just as easily in the summer heat or in the cool depths of winter. Steely, flinty and lean, with fresh lemon and green apples coming through. Made for drinking, not for thinking. Utterly smashable stuff.
About Domaine de Chatillon
The stunning French Alpine region of Savoie is known for its beautiful freshwater lakes and snow capped mountains. The wines of Domaine de Chatillon are produced from plots overlooking the Lac du Bourget and are vibrant, fresh and clean wines that convey their alpine origins.
Offering an exciting introduction to this dynamic region, the label pays homage to the 11th Century Castle overlooking the lake. The property is owned by Edouard Peter who is also the owner of Australian iconic winery Yarra Yering & he has for many decades been a lover of the region & its wines.
Historically the wines of Savoie have been consumed locally as the region only produces less than 1% of France's production & the wines where rarely seen outside of the region , let alone outside of France.
