Hard facts


Practicing organic
Native yeast
Hand harvest

In 2019, Thomas noticed that a special plot that was usually vinified part of the Apremont Thomas cuvée had some very interesting maturity. Grapes were different and he decided to vinified them aside and slightly differently. The result gave a more sunny wine, slightly warmer and bigger but without losing the edge of the Jacquère. As for Lébraz, this wine could have been labelled as Apremont but because it has a very special profile, Thomas prefers to stick with the Vin de Savoie standard appellation!
