    Made from a selection massale of clippings from the vines of renowned Savoie growers Charles Trosset and Michel Grisard, Orchis have two hectares of altesse planted at 350m to 450m altitude in glacial debris/limestone-clay. Aged in older barrels with malos completed, this is an exceptional wine with real poise whose bone dry, dense fruit so typical of low yields is offset by a refreshing acidity and good salinity. For drinking now to 2020.

    100% Mondeuse (11% alc.)

    Log in to view prices

    Yields here are just 25hh from two hectares of vines planted in glacial debris in 1992. Destalked 90% to avoid astringency, it is aged in older barrels before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. Very floral on the nose (like Côte-Rôtie) it has clearly defined spicy black fruits, is very supple on the palate and the tannins are well judged. For drinking now to 2021.
