Jean Perrier et Fils, Savoire

Vinegrowers since 1853, the Perrier family is linked to the history of Savoie and the French Alps, producing around 135,000 hectolitres in the departments of Savoie, Haute-Savoie, Isère and Ain.

Granted an AOC in 1973, the vineyards have expanded over the years to approximately 69 hectares planted with varieties such as Jacquère, Abymes, Apremont and Chignin for white wines and Gamay, Chautagne, Jongieux, Mondeuse and Arbin reds. A fruit driven Méthode Traditionelle Crémant de Savoie with plenty of personality is also produced. All of the wines express the thinking of the grower, they are rough and wild at first, but open up with a warm and beautiful heart and personality, winning awards from the Concours des vins de France and Wine Spectator along the way. 

Vines for the whites are mostly planted on clay- limestone and the reds on granite and clay- limestone on a south eastern exposure near the city of Chambéry in the department of Savoie.

All of the wines undergo a manual harvest, with gentle pneumatic pressing, and temperature controlled fermentation at around 20 degrees celsius. Most of the wines also complete malolactic fermentation to lower the acidity and avoid a secondary fermentation in the bottle.
