Item Description
Eugene Carrel & Fils is located in the village of Jongieux in Savoie. Established in the 14th century, Eugene manages the estate with his son Olivier and his son-in-law Sebastien. 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. The Carrel vineyards are planted with indigenous varietals: Jacquere, Altesse, Gamay and Mondeuse. This wine is a blend of 80 Gamay and 20 Mondause. This lovely Vin de Savoie rose is delightfully fresh, ruby in color and full of red fruit aromas (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries). Lush, with balanced acidity and a hint of Alpine minerality.
About Carrel Jongieux
The village of Jongieux, where our winery is located, is in the Savoy department and more precisely in the Savoy forelands
on the left bank of the Rhone, north of Chambery.

The vines are planted on the slopes of the Mont du Chat and the steep slopes of the Mont de la Charvaz at an average altitude of 300m.

The Jongieux vineyard benefits from a remarkable locality and exposure (facing south/south-west).
The soil is marl limestone under a covering of stones on the surface. This is poor soil, giving moderate yield.

Contrary to what one would think, the winter temperatures are very cold. On the other hand, sunshine conditions are excellent in summer, with around 1800 hours of sunshine a year.
The vineyard benefits from a microclimate thanks to the large areas of water – the Bourget Lake and the Rhone – which surround it.

Vineyard management is very difficult due to the geographical situation (very steep slopes).

For many years grassing has been used to reduce erosion and limit the work required; this allows us to obtain more healthy grapes.

The winery is careful to cultivate the vines in a way which is attentive to the environmental impact (reduction of insecticides and herbicides) with the goal of conserving fauna which is useful for the natural development and defences of the plants.

Craveable
"First time drinking anything from this region. Oh my. DELICIOUS. Mouth watering, delicate raspberry and strawberry notes with a crisp, dry sip. This is the rose I want everyday. Light in color but not in taste. Well balanced in fruit and acid, well balanced. Will be back for more."
