Varichon & Clerc Blanc de Blancs 1999
The maison, founded in 1901 in the town of Seyssel, is truly authentic and a specialist in these terroirs producing light and reinvigorating wines that exude pure mountain air and demonstrates a winemaking technique that is full of character.
The official proclamation of the small AOC Seyssel in 1973 (only 220 acres under vine) was the first sparkling wine AOC in France after Champagne. This was also a great achievement for Varichon and Clerc, one of the major wine producers. In the 1990’s, the winery became part of the Boisset Family of wineries where the excellent quality of the wines was quickly recognized.
