Tradition is hardly sufficient a word to sum up the Perrier family who have lived and worked in the Alps for more than seven generations. They seem to be hewn from the very rock that surrounds them.
The wine style and dedication to local varieties such as Jacquère has not wavered and like their mountains, they remain resolute. And all the better for it. These are wines are stunning, different and enthralling creating flavour and palates that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else. Embodying their landscape and being resistant to change has made these wines special, delightful and truly regional.
Vines for the whites are mostly planted on clay- limestone and the reds on granite and clay- limestone on a south eastern exposure near the city of Chambéry in the department of Savoie.
A méthode traditionelle Cremant produced from Jacquère and a little Chardonnay. 8 or 10 grammes of “liqueur de dosage” are added to give the wine a softer rounder finish and a little more body.
