Domain: Domaine partagé (Gilles Berlioz)
The domain we want to introduce you to is well and truly engaged. The term ‘partagé’ (shared), so dear to Christine and Gilles Berlioz, has been chosen to signify how their work is founded on the connection between all members of the team, the exchange of ideas and trust between them.
It has now been thirty years since Gilles Berlioz changed career paths from landscaping to wine making. Passionate and modest, he is careful in the cultivation of his Chignin terroirs, going as far as to work his land with horses. Converted to organic growing in 2005, this 5-hectare domain has recently been certified biodynamic by Demeter. The wines, vinified as one cuvée per terroir, are wonderfully accomplished, pure, mineral and delicate. They aren’t made in large quantities, but these cuvées perfectly represent their terroirs. Impassioned by the evolution of his work, Gilles Berlioz is always looking for new ways to improve his vines and growing techniques, always with the aim of better respecting the nature that surrounds him.
