The wines of Savoie enjoy a ready, if not hugely discerning, market amongst the legions of climbers and skiers who flock to the Alps each winter and need to slake their thirst after a hard day on the piste. They are not wines that are widely-known elsewhere, which is a pity because they deploy some interesting local grape varieties, are refreshingly distinctive, tend to be relatively low in alcohol and make a great foil for raclettes
and other calorific cuisine.
It is hard to believe that it is already 12 years since the Tiollier brothers of Domaine de L’Idylle were introduced to us by our old friend Alain Graillot since when their wines have slowly engendered a loyal and increasingly large following on these shores.
