Bricka worked with a local organic grower near Geneva, to produce this fresh and aromatic Orange wine. Made entirely from Chasselas, a grape native to the Savoie region, it rests on skins for up to 12 days to produce its distinctive colour. This is a wonderful bottle to open you up to the world of Orange wine. Light and fragrant, with notes of bergamot and clementine and just 10.5% alcohol.

10.5% alcohol. No added sulfites. Chasselas. This is concentrated with some nice grainy structure and a bit of grip, but also some delicacy. Shows some green tea and spice notes as well as a touch of apple. Some wildness here, but also nice balance. Lovely freshness on the finish with a lemony tapering finish.

About Domaine Jeremy Bricka

Jérémy Bricka's route to producing his own wines is a fascinating one. After studying in Burgundy, he spent eight years working for the legendary Rhone producer E Guigal; managing their vines in St Joseph and Hermitage. His passion, however, had always been in the Mountains and ultimately he settled in the small Alpine region of Isère (just south of Savoie). Despite his pedigree in vineyard management and winemaking, Jérémy ended up co-founding France's first whisky distillery Des Hautes Glaces, where he produced whisky until 2015.

The siren call of winemaking, however, eventually lead Jérémy to plant his own vineyards in the region; populating them with rare, local varieties that have been undervalued and at risk of dying out. He planted: Verdesse, Mondeuse Blanche and Noir, Altesse, Persan, Estraire de l’Aduï and Douce Noire. These are all farmed organically, and the vines overlook snowy peaked mountains at 500m above sea level.

Jérémy Bricka's Domaine is young, but quickly building a strong reputation and cult following. We have been incredibly impressed with his Verdesse, Estraire de l’Aduï and the low alcohol, 'Vin Orange' Chasselas.
