Gilles’s entry to winemaking began as a child, when he would travel to Chignin from Chambéry to help his father farm his 0.8ha of vines. As an adult, Gilles worked as a builder and landscapist for a number of years while slowly adding to his leased-holdings until he reached 7 hectares. Gilles was very unhappy with the wines that he was producing early on—using conventional farming methods, chemical treatments, a tractor—and he set out in the late 1990s to reduce his yield greatly, and adopt organic and biodynamic practices.  CriCri is a new-ish cuvée the domaine produces from some recently acquired plot of old-vine (49 to 73 years) Jacquère from the lieu-dit Combafort et Pré Callet. The wine is fermented and raised in a fiberglass egg on the lees. Only 13mg/L added SO2 just prior to bottling. ABV is quite low, coming in at 10.5%.  Only 10 cases came to the US this year. 

Pairing: Raclette, fondue, fresh water fish, spring herb salad

Grape: Jacquére 

Soil: Clay & Limestone 

Viticulture: Organic certified since 2002, low sulfur
