Aigle les Murailles
Always a lovely wine; serve at 8-10°C on its own, or with freshwater fish or white meat dishes. It is made from Chasselas grapes grown on the steeply terraced vineyards climbing the hills behind the town of Aigle and its fairytale Château. The soil is light gravel/shale, and the vineyards give full exposure to the sun. The warm dry Foehn winds maintain the microclimate which pertains right up until the harvest, ensuring ripening beyond the reach of the dampness and mists of autumn, protecting the grapes from rot.
Each of the 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2014 won gold medals, the 2009 again in 2013.
The wine has a pale golden yellow colour, with a rich, floral nose, and hints of caramel. On the palate it is dry, predominantly mineral, yet with good fruit following. The finish is initially warming, then develops with a dry minerality and a beautiful elegant bitterness that is extremely long.
