    Domaine Fabien Trosset , France
    Fabien Trosset and his partner Chloé took over the estate of Jean-Louis Trosset (first cousin of our other Arbin producer Louis and Joseph Trosset) in 2011. They slowly began expanding the domaine until it reached its current size of 16 hectares, with 13 of these planted to red and 3 to white. These vines have an average age of 35 years, and being in the Arbin cru, the domaine’s only red grape is naturally Mondeuse. For whites, they have planted Altesse and Roussanne. The vineyard is worked using lutte raisonée, and soils are aerated but not plowed by machine. Treatments and sprays are used only when absolutely necessary, and the harvest is done entirely manually. The work in the winery is based on a respect for tradition, updated using modern capabilities. The domaine produces about 70,000 bottles a year across all their wines.

    Tucked up into the sheltered foothills of the Alps where conditions vary considerably from one spot to the next, the vineyards of Savoie are widely dispersed within three main growing districts. These are Seyssel, Bugey and general Savoie. Within these are 16 different cru vineyard areas.

    The region boasts a large number of unique indigenous grapes, incidentally unrelated to any nearby regions’ varieties. The styles here tend toward organic and traditional. In the past, the dynamic summer and winter tourist population consumed most Savoie wine before it could leave the area but the recent interest in esoteric varieties and natural, artisan wine has brought a renewed interest to Savoie.

    In Savoie's most northern vineyards near Lake Geneva, the Chasselas grape dominates. Moving south, the white grape known as Altesse (also sometimes called Roussette) is responsible for Roussette de Savoie as well as Roussette de Seyssel.

    Just north of Chambéry the white, Jacquère grows in the cru of Jongieux, along with Altesse, and Chardonnay. In the cru of Chautagne, the red grapes Gamay, Pinot Noir, and, especially, the local Mondeuse do well.

    Chambéry, once famous for its vermouth, contains the crus of Abymes, Apremont, Arbin, Chignin and Cruet.

    One of the oldest and distinctive red grape varieties of Savoie, Mondeuse is showing great potential as global demand for this rare wine grows. Some of the best Mondeuse comes from the Bugey region or is sold as a varietal Vin de Savoie, often from a particular cru. Somm Secret—DNA profiling has confirmed that Mondeuse and Syrah are related. The two have a lot of common characteristics, namely a dense color with black fruit on the palate and herbal or spicy aromas.
