The ultimate in exceptional wines was born from the extraordinary encounter of a hand harvest of Jacquère grapes with the extreme cold of high altitude on the roof of Europe. The idea came to Pascal Perceval, passionate Savoyard winemaker and owner of a magnificent estate in the heart of the French Alps, to give a new dimension to a few hectoliters of one of his best nectars. After pressing, fermentation and maturation of the carefully selected grapes, the tanks are transported by helicopter to the exceptional altitude of 3,613 meters. There, near the highest peak in Europe, the wine is frozen for 5 to 30 days. It is then brought down to Domaine Perceval where the vats slowly thaw in the sun. The liquid is permanently monitored in order to intervene quickly at the moment of its melting and to take the final product in its integrity. The initial must loses between 50% and 70% of its water as it naturally becomes more concentrated under the effect of the extreme cold. The fermentation process at very low temperature will have, moreover, allowed to deliver rare aromas.
