Domaine Adrien Berlioz

Adrien Berlioz (cousin of Gilles Berlioz), settled in 2006 in Chignin, in Savoie. The winegrower now owns a little more than 5 hectares of vineyards on hill sides, all worked following organic principles.
A harmonious development of the vines and perfectly sane grapes are essential to Adrien, who maintains that a great wine always originates in outstanding grapes.
The soils are dug and planted with herbs, so as to force the vines to…
throw their roots deeper into the ground to reach for precious nutriments there.
The grapes are always harvested at optimal maturity, never lacking acidity either: the balance in the wines tasted today is breathtaking.
In the cellar, "who can do the most can do the least": it would be counter-productive to manipulate such vibrant and lively musts. The…
grapes are simply but very gently pressed, before letting indigenous yeasts do their trick, without any other additive.
A malolactic fermentation is then immediately triggered, before and ageing period using vats, or half-muids.
In total, about fifteen wines make up the range of the Estate, all doing justice to the local grape varieties.
Albinum originates in a very step clay-limestone, hence very hard to…
reach. In the bottle, this Bergeron (or Roussanne) is rich, almost creamy. The length is persistant, hinting at great ageing potential.
The Mondeuse is named Marie Clothilde. Plump and rich, its ageing is very discreet and therefore very charming.
