Born and raised in Savoy, after graduation, Jean-Yves worked for Thierry Allemand in Cornas and then with Bruno Schuller in Alsace. Having these two mentors shapes him deeply, making him more and more passionate about natural winemaking. Back home in 2004, he starts making wine in the village of Chevaline, where his vineyards are located between 350-500 meters in a predominantly shale land. Working between the rows at this altitude, in the French Alps, is a bit like climbing in the mountains, so all the work in the vineyard, including the harvest, is done strictly by hand. Jean-Yves is a vigneron who is patiently reviving ancient, almost forgotten vineyards in the French Alps. From its first vintage, its wines continue to redefine Savoy and its potential.
