About the maker
Steeped in history since the 1950s, the biodynamic certified Domaine de la Pinte has unparalleled stock of old vine Savagnin, completed with plenty of Chardonnay and old vine reds.
Domaine de la Pinte was reanimated by progressive big and positive decisions. In 1999, the 34 hectares were converted to organic viticulture, then in 2009, to biodynamic culture. The wines are made in concrete tanks or enormous old-style oak fermenters with a Burgundian style rigour, seeking to provide only controlled micro-oxygenation in topped-up various sized oak barrels. SO2 is used sparingly, only during the final stages of racking prior to bottling, with the aim to have zero free SO2 in bottle.
