Description

After studying agriculture and winemaking in Bordeaux, Laurent Fondimare moved to Isère to work in the agricultural real estate sector while waiting for the right opportunity to begin his next winemaking chapter. That opportunity came in 2010, when local winemaker and family friend Michel Bozonat offered Laurent a hectare of old vine Verdesse, situated within a diverse polycultural farm that included walnut trees, corn, and cows. After five years of slowly building his estate, Laurent recruited the assistance of his close friend Wilfrid Debroize. Today, Domaine des Rutissons’ holdings span five hectares spread over seven small plots. They are committed to preserving the many local grape varieties such as Verdesse, Jacquère, Viognier, Gamay, Mondeuse, Persan, Peloursin, Etraire de la Lui, Alicante among others. The domaine is certified organic, picks all grapes by hand, exclusively uses native yeasts during fermentation, and keeps sulfur levels to an absolute minimum.
