La Grive

Gamaret et Garanoir

La Côte Appellation d’origine contrôlée

A wine that came into being thanks mainly to our close friendship with Steve Beetschen, and the passionate discussions with him that helped and encouraged us throughout the process!
The starting point: Gamaret and Garanoir, two grape varieties with body, fruit and powerful enough for a fortified wine.
Next, the process is entirely traditional: the grapes are gently crushed by pressing them (treading by foot), before maceration where the juice and skins stay in contact for several weeks.
Fermentation is stopped at the right moment by adding natural alcohol from the wine, which lets the wine keep a certain amount of sugar. This very old vinification method gives us a sweet red wine where the alcohol, sugar and tannins are happily balanced and not at all heavy.
A wine that when tasted shows lovely balance, with aromas of slightly jammy black and red fruits.

The patina of time

Very low yields, a selection of old vines, prolonged maturation and bottled aging prior to placing on the market contribute to the emergence of refined and refined wines. The quest for this elusive perfection is at the heart of our business: these exceptional wines confirm our faith in nature and in life. Beyond a success, a reward!


Harvest on 29th August 2022

In 2022, the weather was exceptionally hot and dry all summer.

The chasselas started flowering at the end of May. We feared the heavy storms and at the same time waited impatiently for the rain. Between the beginning of May and mid-August, it rained 150mm, which is 4x less than in 2021 at the same period (it is true that in 2021... it had rained particularly heavily!).

We had to adapt our cultivation methods, for example by braiding the branches rather than shearing them and by leaving more " umbrella " leaves in the grape area. In fact, the leaves provide shade and removing them in such heat strains the plant. In addition, we laid down the grass and did not mow it. This protects against evaporation and keeps the soil moist.

Shortly before the harvest, we worked hard to remove the few bunches of grapes that had blocked their ripening due to the lack of water and that remained acidic, by passing over each plot with a loyal and expert team.

In the end, apart from the very young vines and a few more sensitive areas, the vines proved to be incredibly resilient to the drought.

We started harvesting on the 29th of August with our young Pinot Gris vines. This was unprecedented in Féchy. The berries were slightly smaller, but very healthy and particularly concentrated in flavour. These small yields allowed us to harmonise the ripeness of the skins and the sugars.

2022 shows great taste, body and concentration.
