Producer
Eugene Carrel & Fils is located in the village of Jongieux, about 40 miles southwest of Geneva, in between the Rhone River and Lake Bourget, France’s largest lake. Established in the 14th century, Eugene manages the estate with his son Olivier and his son-in-law Sebastien. The vineyards are situated at 1,476 feet and planted on steep, southwest facing slopes to calcareous clay soils. Despite their proximity to the Swiss Alps, the climate is surprisingly warm; Jongieux enjoys 2-3 more hours of sun than any other area in the Savoie. Consequently, the fruit reaches phenolic ripeness which diminishes the need for chaptalization resulting in wines that are balanced and fresher than its regional counterparts. The Carrel vineyards are planted with indigenous varietals: Jacquere (sold as Vin de Savoie Jongieux Banc), Altesse (aka Rousette de Savoie), Gamay and Mondeuse. The majority of Carrel’s wines are vinified in stainless steel tanks to maintain freshness, aromas and flavors. A small selection is aged in oak barrels to lend additional depth and structure to the wines.
