Savoie, a mosaic of dramatic and diverse sub-regions
The Savoie vineyard is made up of islets each very different from each other. From North to South: Crépy, Côte d'Arve, Combe de Savoie, Chambéry and Chautagne. Most of the vineyard rests on the granite massif of Mont-Blanc and is surrounded by the limestone Pre-Alps.
The implantation of the vines was done on rocks torn from the summits as well as on the cones of dejection which were formed during the last glaciations. The vines are located at an altitude of 250 to 600m. The vineyard benefits from a mountain, continental and sometimes Mediterranean climate (Chautagne).
