Chignin is a named cru of the Vin de Savoie appellation in the Savoie region of eastern France. It is named after the village of Chignin, which is located immediately south-east of Chambery. Wines from Chignin may be white or red.
Red Chignin wines are made principally from Mondeuse, Gamay and Pinot Noir, but may also contain up to 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and the rare Persan – a variety unique to Savoie. Peppery and deeply colored, like most Mondeuse-based wines, red Chignin is similar in style to that which is produced in Arbin and Saint-Jean-de-la-Porte.
Chignin white wines are made predominantly from Jacquere and are dry and light in style. However, it should be noted that the village is best known for its Roussanne white wines, which are sold as Chignin-Bergeron.
