Wine list

Domaine de Chatillon Jacquere

2018

The Jacquère from Domaine de Chatillon is light-bodied and crisp with a clean steely minerality and light floral blossom notes. On the palate, this has a citrus or green apple acidity and can be compared to some lighter Muscadet wines, without the leesy characters.

Domaine de Chatillon Rose Gamay

2018

There’s a subtle array of pomegranate and rose petals, with savoury red fruit aromas of strawberry and macerated cherry with hints of wildflowers and spice. The palate is lifted with roses, strawberry and glace cherry that frame this structural, floral and dry balanced rose.

Domaine de Chatillon Gamay

2017

A restrained savoury wine with vivid aromas and earthy tones with cranberry and cherries fruits. There are fresh cut violets, iris andPomegranate with a hint of cherry, plum and raspberry. Subtle notes of potting soil form a backdrop to its sweet and flowery flavours. The wine has a moderate acidity combined with the tartness of red fruits and structural tannins

Domaine de Chatillon Mondeuse

2018

Vivid purple violet colour with very appealing violet, rose petal, raspberry fruit, and white pepper, wet stone aromas, on the palate its medium-bodied plush and fresh with supple well-integrated tannins. It shows ample juicy strawberry, red currant, some blueberry, red cherry, sour plum, spice flavours and a hint of cacao with a lingering clean refreshing finish and a hint of savouriness.

Savoie, France

45.4932° N, 6.4724° E

Savoy, French Savoie, Italian Savoia, historical and cultural region encompassing the Haute-Savoie and Savoie départements, Rhône-Alpes région, southeastern France. It is coextensive with the historic region of Savoy. The early inhabitants of the area were the Allobroges, members of a Celtic tribe who fiercely resisted Roman penetration. They were finally conquered by the Romans in 121 BCE, and their territory was later included in the province of Gallia Narbonensis. During the period of barbarian invasions, the area of Savoy was assigned to the Burgundians (437) and then passed to the Frankish kingdom of Burgundy (534). The name Savoy dates from this period and eventually came to apply specifically to the land between Lake Geneva on the north and the Isère River on the south.

Winemaker

Varieties produced are Jacquére, Rosé, Gamay, and locally revered Mondeuse. Jacquére denotes a vibrant, clean white, with subtle minerality that evokes Chatillon’s idyllic open air and summer sunshine, while Mondeuse is a medium-bodied red with firm tannins and aromatic flavours of raspberry, violets, and spice that echo the dense forest blanketing the mountains. All fruit is hand-picked from the 40-60 year-old vines, and all wines vinified locally to capture freshness & vivacity. Historically, these wines were a local-only privilege to consume, as Savoie produces a mere <1% of France’s wine repertoire. Domaine de Chatillon invites a global audience of wine lovers to savour the French alps and delve into Savoie.
