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 2018 Gamay "Vaud"

Colombe sources their gamay from vines averaging 35 years in age from several of their vineyards on a mixture of clay and limestone soils. Traditionally this wine is 60% whole cluster and fermented by native yeast in both stainless and oak cask. Traditional pigeage is practiced during the middle part of the 20 day maceration, the wine is then racked and malolactic is finished in stainless and neutral oak barrel.
