The Tasting of Black Giac
Black Giac by Giachino estate is a biodynamic wine with smooth tannins, like a small creamy kiss that lines the mouth and that stays for more pleasure. There is violet, a lot of spices, roasted notes, and wild red fruits bringing freshness, giving the impression of having been picked during a walk on the massif of the Chartreuse. An interesting wine that is both warm with its suave and tannic side, but also fresh with its terroir and its light degree of alcohol. A wine that deserves to be drunk !

Domaine Giachino: Natural Wine from Savoy
The Genton family has been working the land (cereals, nuts, fruit trees, vines) for several centuries in Savoie. In 1988, Frédéric Genton took over the vines of his grandfather Marius. At that time, the vineyard represented only 1.5 Ha of surface. But from now on, all the land will be dedicated solely to vines. Domaine Giachino was born.
Located in the heart of the Chartreuse Regional Park (a little paradise on earth!), Domaine Giachino has, over the years, turned to planting new native grape varieties. Today spanning 9 hectares, the estate is made up of 6 hectares of Jacquère, and the rest of Mondeuse, Gamay, Persan, Roussette and other unknown grape varieties.
At the beginning, Frédéric cultivated the vines in a conventional way. But after long questions, he turned to sustainable agriculture and then fully organic in 2006. David Genton, after having worked for others in the wine world, joined his brother at the estate to support him in this new change. And in order to perpetuate the family tradition, Clément, Frédéric’s son, has also been taking part in the adventure since 2015.
Giachino wines, which apart from a mini dose of sulfite at bottling, do not know any input, are of an impressive mastery. Fresh, fruity, balanced, pure… we’ve always drunk their wines, but we’ve never been disappointed!
