Description

Jean Francois Quenard Chignin Anne de la Biguerne

Jean Francois Quenard Chignin Anne de la Biguerne is from a single one hectare vineyard planted with 65 year old Jacquère vines, the Savoie’s most widely planted white grape variety which offers delicious fresh floral wines of modest alcoholic degree. It enjoys the richer texture which comes from older vines, yet retains a floral character and a steely thread typical of the variety. It’s spicy dry and complex style makes it a great food wine.

The wine area of Chignin, located 10 kms south of Chambery, is characterised by its open limestone-clay slopes as well as its magnificent towers dating from the Middle Ages.

The family Quénard (also known as Cardin) has cultivated vines here for many years.

The domaine consists of 15 hectares which stretch to the foot of the towers of the ancient fortress.

Jean-François Quénard is inspired by the traditional methods passed through the generations.  These are based on respect for the terroir, with traditional cultivation and vinification methods aided by modern techniques.

Each year the domaine’s wines win many medals and are mentioned in the top guides.

In a wine area where there are many Quénard families, first names are very important.

The family domaine of Jean-Pierre and Jean-François, handed down from father to son since 1644, is located in the upper part of the commune, at the foot of the famous « Towers of Chignin », whose origins remain shrouded in mystery.

There is a spiritual dimension in growing vines.  One studies at the school of humility.  We are tied to the soil and dependent on what nature gives, frost, hail….We are simply those who pass through, but the land carries on from generation to generation.

Each parcel is vinified separately, like giving birth to a baby.  From grape to wine.

Jean-François, oenologist (wine expert), returned to the family domaine to work alongside his father in 1987, after he had successfully graduated from the University of Dijon, and gained various valuable experience in other areas:  notably in Bordeaux at the Grézillac Laboratory, at the Domaine de l’Espiguette near Montpellier, in the United States in the wine areas of California, and with Jules Chauvet, a fundamental meeting at the time and whose philosophy impressed him deeply.  To be « apprenticed » to the uncontested « master of tasting » enabled Jean-François in his turn to be able to share his passion for wine.  Since his return the domaine has grown from 5 to 15 hectares.
