Domaine Guillaume Pin was founded by Guillaume’s father, Georges, in the early 1970s. Since 2001, Guillaume has expanded the domaine from 3.5 hectares to 10. Guillaume’s vines are located between Le Villard in the south of the village, and Croix du Plot in the north. While Le Villard is dominated by limestone soils, the Croix du Plot vineyard is composed mostly of kimmeridgian clay. This unique terroir diversity allows him to produce complex and fresh wines typical of the area.

Guillaume exclusively farms the Jacquère grape variety, which is native to Savoie. All of his wines are aged on fine lees for a minimum of six months and never see wood or undergo malolactic fermentation. For this purist, it is out of the question to erase the natural acidity of the grape. The result is chiseled and sharp apremonts that have become renowned and sought after by sommeliers.
