Brice Omont of Domaine des Ardoisières has 16 hectares of mountainous terraced vineyards above the village of Cévins in Savoie. Since the beginning of the project in the late 1990s, these have become some of the most sought after wines in the region, with Brice's focus on vinifying each parcel according to it's specific soil type and micro-climate creating highly expressive and unique expressions of terroir.

The Silice Blanc is a négoce cuvée that comes from organically farmed 50-60 year old vines on limestone scree and clay limestone soils in Apremont. Fresh on the nose with hints of white flowers and lemon zest. Tense and lively on the palate with more white flowers and touches of quinine and lime.
