Brice Ormont

"Brice Ormont produces outstanding wines. The yields are very low giving dazzling and original wines."

Soil Specificity

The soils at the foot of the Bauges massif in the Alps are of clay-limestone type bringing to the vine quantity of nutrients very beneficial to the quality of the grapes. We distinguish two types of soils. On one hand, rich and deep soils based on limestone, sandy-silt, and red clay. On the other hand, poor and shallow soils, stony, based on schist and mica schist with sandy-clay, where the vine roots reach deep down into the rock to draw water and nutrients.

A Passionate Lineage

Domaine des Ardoisières was created in 1998 by the iconic Michel Grisard. Brice Ormont joined the team in 2005 and took it over five years later. The vineyard was planted on steep slopes (up to 60%) only with local grape varieties like Jacquère, Mondeuse, Altesse, and Persan. Brice Ormont's rigorous work in the vineyard is the key asset of the wine quality. Every action that is run in the vineyard aims to convey to grapes, therefore to wines, the identity of each plot. This biodynamic vineyard is run with passion and respect of the living world.
