Adrien Berlioz Specialities: White wine

Adrien Berlioz works with great dedication and determination 17 micro plots, totaling 7 hectares, all located in the blessed terroir of Chignin and planted in deep, predominantly clay-limestone soils.

A wide selection of native grape varieties are grown on the estate, from the traditional Mondeuse, Jacquère, Altesse and Roussanne to rarer varieties such as Persan. The winemaking and blending of the parcels ensures that the depth and character of each parcel is fully reflected.

The domaine has been certified organic since 2012 and biodynamic since 2020. All plots are cultivated using the most natural means possible, with no herbicides, chemical fertilizers or other synthetic products either in the vineyards or in the winery. Maximum care and attention is paid to respecting the environment, the soils and the vines.

A corner of paradise...with slopes from hell!

Most of the vineyards are located on steep slopes, with gradients reaching ill 50%.

The extremely hard work done in the vineyards is also made possible by purpose-built grape transport systems! All operations are done manually and yields are quite low, about 40 hl/ha. Harvesting is done by hand in 50-liter crates. The grapes are then transported to the winery with the utmost care where they are sorted on the sorting table, a rarity in the region.

The wines are aged in stainless steel tanks or for some cuvées in demi-muid (600-liter barrels). Adrien produces fresh, elegant and easy-drinking wines with exceptional mineral structure.
