"We’re sure that you could count on one hand and, more likely, one finger the amount of winemakers who had their first exposure to their future craft by crushing grapes alongside the Jura’s legendary Pierre Overnoy. While Corentin Houillon’s familial ties (his uncle Emmanuel took over Maison Pierre Overnoy and his aunt, Adeline, makes similarly hard-to-find wines in Pupillin) have no doubt aided in his ability - helped along the way by stints with Stéphane Tissot and Dominique Derain - to craft unerringly elegant wines from his new home in the Savoie where he tends 5 hectares of steep vineyards. One to watch for sure." - lowintervention.com

Altesse from a southwest facing quartz plot. Half the grapes are vinified in demi-muid and half are in large concrete tanks. This has a distinct lemon-lime quality with lots of energetic freshness and balanced acid.
