Still a fairly young domaine, it was created in 1999 by brothers Etienne and Raphaël who came from a vineyard-owning family. They both trained in wine and have gradually built up their vineyard holdings and gained a loyal clientele. With quiet determination, they have converted their vineyards to organic growing and over their simple winemaking cellar have built a tasting room overlooking the town of St-Pierre d’Albigny and the Combe de Savoie. It is worth tasting through their range – the best wines are usually their Roussette and two cuvées of Mondeuse, the fruitier Les Taillis and the more structured and ageworthy Le Pied de la Barme from older vines. You will receive a reserved, but genuine welcome.
