For more than 50 years, the Domaine de la Colombe has been seeking to bring out the terroir in its wines. By working slowly, patiently, step by step to understand the characteristics of every “Parchet” (plot of land with grapevines). Using cultural methods of production by respecting a natural process. Via uncompromising requirements throughout the vinification.
The Domaine de la Colombe’s ambition is to acquire a better understanding of the terroir. Bring the soil back to life. Respect a natural process. Use natural and cultural methods. Understand clay, limestone, heavy earth or silt. Look for plots that best reveal the characteristics of each varietal. Get back the mineralisation of the Chasselas, the fruitiness of Pinot Noir, the mellow structure of Gamaret. Bring the authenticity of these terroirs of Vaud closer, which give their wine all their character.
With 50-acres, the domain cultivates ten wine varieties, including: Chasselas, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir, Garanoir, Garamet. Cultural methods, similar to biodynamics, looking to bring the soil back to life. The cellar is equipped with oak barrels and vats, allowing for the production of wine to be true to the complexity of its aromas. The entirety of the vinification is lead by the process of tasting and by respecting the characteristics of each wine.
