The Curtets have two vineyards taken over from the local organic wine legend Jacques Maillet. Les Vignes du Seigneur (The vineyard of the Lord) in Serrières-en-Chautagne is planted to Gamay and Pinot Noir, and Le Cellier des Pauvres (The cellar of the poor) in Motz is planted to Altesse, Jacquère, Mondeuse. The two vineyards are on the steepest slopes, requiring hard work for the couple to maintain a tiny 5 hectares.
Made with 50% Gamay, 40% Mondeuse, and 10% Pinot Noir, the wine is light and low alcohol, without compromising on flavours and intensity. You can almost smell the Alps in the glass with the purity of the fruit and floral aromas, compounded with a meaty, savouriness that makes up a unique nose. In the mouth the lightness is balanced by the delicate aromas and subtle minerality.
