This is a Producer you Need to know about!

Based in the remote Tarantaise Valley the project was intially thought up to replant and rebuild the old terraces overlooking the village of Cevins. Brice Ormont took over, once the villagers had cleared the land, who is the Vigneron to this day. 

Visually it is one of the most beautiful and dramatic vineyards you can see. Terraces similar to the Mosel. The soils here are limestone, so a classic quality indicator.

The wine is fermented wholebunch (stalks and all) and then spends a further 9 months ageing in fibreglass tanks. It's a highly aromatic and pure wine. Similar to Gamay, but how Gamay was back in 2014 without all the added climate-change-induced-glycerol-injection. Jura lovers take note, Poulsard is its stylistic cousin.
