Winemaker Brice Omont farms this most vertiginous slope of the 6ha of land in Cévins specifically for Améthyste. Borne of a southeasternly exposure (mimicking that of Côte Rotie) and a microclimate due in part to the quick-warming mica-schists found throughout the vineyard, Améthyste is Omont's top cuvée, and one we're particularly excited to (very occasionally) stock.
