"Sophisticated nose and really complex. Lovely hint of nuttiness on herbs and flowers. Good grip on the end. 17/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
Paul Gadenne’s interest in wine began 10 years ago when he moved to Chignin, in the foothills of the Bauges massif, with his father. All his friends in the village came from winemaking families, and he started to help in their vineyards in the school holidays. He decided to study winemaking in Beaune, then returned to work in a winery in Chignin. He works largely organically in all his vineyards, and has a small cellar where he works in a low intervention way – fermenting with natural yeasts. He is aiming to work with nature and find a pure expression of the local terroir. Le Debaroule - made with one of Savoie’s regional specialities Jacquère, this is refined and long, full of pear, red apple, quince and a nutty complexity.
