"Born and raised in the Savoie, Jean-Yves Péron studied winemaking in Bordeaux in the late 90’s. After school he spent some time working for Thiery Allemand in Cornas and later with Bruno Schueller in Alsace, both of whom he considers his mentors.

In 2004 he returned to the Savoie and began making his own wine in the village of Chevaline on schist-covered sloping vineyards running anywhere between 350 and 550 meters. In some ways working vineyards at these altitudes in the Alps, on slopes this steep is more like mountain climbing than winemaking, but Jean-Yves believes that the opportunity to work with vines over 100 years old on this ancient terroir is more than worth it." - Zev Rovine

Every year, we get tiny quantities of his wines. This wine is made using the Favorita grape which JYP is sourcing from Piedmonte, northern Italy. It goes through 2 weeks of carbonic maceration giving a lighter extraction, pulling out the fruit first -- most notably pear.
