Brothers Philippe and François Tiollier have built up this domaine over the past couple of decades to become one of the really reliable good-value names in Savoie. Today they work together with Philippe's son Sylvain. All are great supporters of the region’s work, and export a little, especially in the UK (via Yapp). Their tasting room is small but functional and they have recently built new cellars – they are always happy to show visitors around if they are not too busy. Particularly interesting wines are the Cruet Vieille Vigne (from Jacquère), Mondeuse Prestige and the occasional late harvest white. Great view to Mont Blanc too.

Useful information: Open every day except Sunday and public holidays 10.00-12.15 and 14.00–18.30 though appointment preferred. Some English spoken.
