Domaine La Colombe

Vaud | Féchy

It is not just the glaciers that are melting in Switzerland. Dated mindsets are, too. There is a push to organic farming as a means of greater vineyard expression, a healthy embrace of truly natural wines, and a significant swing to women taking over family domains. With these baselines are established, Laura Paccot says, “The challenge for our generation is in the cellar. To learn to work without adding anything, but to retain control so we keep the pleasure and signature of where the wine comes from.” The Paccot family seem ideally suited to hit this mark of precision, discretion, and respect for both both tradition and the future.

Domaine La Colombe 2017 Brez (Chasselas)

The vineyard of Brez is a slope that contains pebbly, calcerous marl soils and vines above 40 years in age. The rockier, limestone influence often produces a wine that is more linear than that from Petit Clos, but equally as giving. Similarly, this wine is fermented with native yeasts in cool stainless steel, and then aged on its lees in stainless steel.
