Jean-Yves Péron

Jean-Yves Péron

Jean-Yves Péron is a Savoyard vigneron who is trying to recover ancient and almost forgotten vineyards in the French Alps. After studying oenology in Bordeaux in the late 1990s, he worked for some of the most famous natural vignerons in France, such as Thierry Allemand in Cornas and Bruno Schuller in Alsace. In 2004 he decides to go home and start producing his wine in the village of Chevaline. The vineyards here are steeply sloping and covered with schist, this means that all work in the vineyards, including the harvest, is done by hand. All this is rewarded with hundred-year-old vines that have never been attacked by phylloxera. In the vineyards we find plants of Mondeuse, Jacquere, Altesse, Roussanne all native grape varieties of Savoy to which recently rows of Riesling, Gewurztraminer and Grenache have been added. Its red wines are produced with the carbonic maceration technique while the whites see prolonged maceration times, influenced by Jean-Yves' love for the "orange" wines of northern Italy.
