France: You're exploring the French Alps, Savoie, Beaujolais and the Jura wines
Cement tanks with enamel coating were once very common, but went out of fashion in favour of steel and plastic composite tanks.
They're still widely found in traditional cellars in Beaujolais and Switzerland but until recently people did not put them in new cellars.
They are coming back in fashion for their thermal insulator effect, for "low intervention" winemaking.
France is the great wine nation - but you won't find Bordeaux or classic Côtes du Rhône here! We head for the foothills of the Alps for far rarer, more interesting bottles.
Beaujolais is the "first hint of the Alps" and the home of fantastic Gamay.
Savoie is in the mountainous areas just south of Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) and the border with Switzerland all the way to Lyon and the Rhone valley.
Delivery within 2 days, wines left where requested and one is able to order half a dozen wines at one time. We have always rated Swiss wines very highly and it is good to find a company that supplies such good quality wines.
We primarily drink reds so my expectations weren't high, but it was amazing! I bought the wine for it's sentimental value, but now I'm lamenting the fact I didn't buy more when given the opportunity. I want to say Thank You once again for the amazing service. It's something that we don't experience enough of in our current world.
