Crépy, cru (formerly a small appellation in its own right) within the eastern French region of savoie on the south-eastern shore of Lake Geneva producing light, dry white wines from the chasselas grape. They differ from their Swiss counterparts in being crisper as most are made without malolactic conversion.
