Tasting Notes

Vin des Allobroges Argile offers an aromatic finesse based on notes of lemon and pine resin, with a subtle acidulous and mineral background. Ample and powerful attack, followed by a lovely texture, finishing on lime zest, lemon and pine resin.

France

Jura / Savoie

Jura and Savoie regions are two small wine regions in the far east of France, in the mountains bordering Switzerland. Most of the productions in both regions is white, with a growing trends towards red wine based on local grapes like Mondeuse, Trousseau, Poulsard, and Persan.

Domaine des Ardoisières

Cool to moderate mountain climate

Domaine des Ardoisières

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.
