Prieuré Saint-Christophe Rouge 2018

Prieuré Saint-Christophe Rouge 2018

Region: Savoie, France

Varietal: Mondeuse

Michel Grisard created Prieuré St. Christophe in the late 1970's with one goal in mind: make a truly great wine from Mondeuse. His journey led him to Biodynamics decades before most and brought harsh judgement from many of his peers. But he succeeded. And along the way, he planted Altesse and made a truly great white wine to stand beside his Mondeuse. In 2015, Michel decided to retire. One gets the sense that no decision was made lightly by Michel, so it follows that his successor was carefully handpicked.  The Giachino family now farms these old vines and makes the wines under the Prieuré St. Christophe label. The torch is in capable hands. These are benchmark wines that show the nobility of the varieties and the terroir. They are, along with the wines of Domaine Belluard, Savoie’s greatest oenological achievement and capable of aging for years or even decades. We think they would make Michel proud.
