Notes from the Importer: Established by monks in the 1300 the Pignier family took over in 1794, the family grow all their own fruit over 37 acres at the foothills of Jura mountains. Current head winemaker Maria Florence Pignier went through the process of Demeter Biodynamic certification and this was completed in 2003.
These vines are “complantées“, meaning planted together, an old wine-growing method whereby a mixture of grape varieties are planted side by side in the same plot.
