Brice Omont, today in his thirties, has created a cru in the mountainside, albeit "with a little help". In the 1990s, they started cutting back the forest, rebuilding the ancient terraces and planting grapes anew... and so was born a very unique vineyard, the Coteau de Cevins. The early years were difficult indeed, but this was an immense human undertaking: 12 passionate business partners supported the entire mad project. They would have to wait 15 years for the first profitable harvest... Today, they talk about Brice throughout Savoie region and beyond. The estate now is made up of several parcels over 13 hectares and produces around 45 000 bottles. About 30 000 come from parcels leased on the commune of Saint-Pierre-de-Soucy, and are more immediately accessible than the wines from the Coteau de Cevins, which are richer and need to spend some time in your cellar. All of the cuvées carry the name of the soils on which the grapes were grown. Originally biodynamic, the estate is now cultivated organically.
A crystalline juice, with notes of spices, almonds, and orange blossom. A clean, intense, harmonious, unctuous wine with great length on the palate. This ranks among France’s great white wines, crafted to pair with your finest meals.
