Savoie, also spelled Savoy, is a French department in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in eastern France. As a wine region, Savoie consists of many isolated sub-regions and plots of vineyards scattered across four French departments: Savoie, Haute-Savoie, Isère, Ain. Savoie neighbours Switzerland (to the East), the Jura region (to the North) and the little-known Bugey region, which is west across the Rhône river. The climate is continental with alpine and Mediterranean influences. Vines in Savoie are often planted on mountain slopes between 820 ft. and 1804ft. Despite their elevation, Savoie vineyards enjoy a surprisingly warm microclimate due to the southern/south-eastern sun exposure and the moderating effects of nearby rivers and lakes. Apricot, fig, olive and almond trees can share the growing space with vineyards in Savoie. Although the vineyard soils are mostly lime-rich glacial material and scree, there is a great diversity of soil types in Savoie: moraines (glacial deposits), alluvial soils, river terraces (river stone over clay), terraced steep limestone scree slopes, and the molasse basin … Ultimately, Savoie presents an incredible patchwork of soils that came from the epochs that erected the Alps during the Cretaceous and Jurassic periods.

Certified Organic and biodynamic. Second generation winemaker Vincent is now leading the way at Domaine Claud Quenard & Fils, with a goal to use as low intervetion menthods of farming as possible. From the use of plants, algae and mineral elements, as well as the minimal use of sulfur and copper in the vineyard, to working closely with the microbial life of their soils, they are leading the way for low intervention wines in the area, of which only a small handful of wineries practice.

Tasting note: Concentrated and rich; dark red hedgerow fruit on the nose. The palate is juicy and sweet; with tangy wild strawberry; raspberry and cherry. The finish is bright and tart; with gentle savoury notes and a bright almost citrus acidity.
Winemaking Detail: Manually harvested followed by 10 days maceration and a oft pressing for 3 hours. Full malolactic fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats, before being racked onto fine lees for 12 months ageing in oak.
