Jean Perrier & Fils is a family estate that has been passed from father to son for seven generations since 1853. The history of this family is linked to the history of wines in Savoie and the French Alps. With a vineyard of 60 hectares, this is the leading family making mountain-style wines, using unique grapes typical to the region such as Jacquère, Altesse, and Mondeuse, under the new appellation Crémant de Savoie.
These wines are appreciated around the world for their great complexity and freshness: very dry and fruity, with a lot of minerality. They represent a quaint and wild way of life and offer a great new experience in the winegrowing French world.
Mondeuse is a variety of wine that is typically Savoyard. Beautiful grapes that grow close together, long. Dark blue colour, almost black when the fruit is mature. The juicy pulp melts in the mouth with a tasting sugar.
