  • Alpine Wines Grape Varieties: Petite Arvine

There's Petite Arvine and then there's Marie-Thérèse Chappaz's Grain Arvine!! Its the kind of wine that once tried it becomes a lifelong favourite as previous buyers will testify and we see in repeat orders. Although being a cult winemaker our allocatinos are always quite small.

This wine has a lovely medium gold colour.

On the nose its all about freshness with notes of mint and grapefruit, evolving into a richly complex aromatic profile.

On the palate it's full bodied and silky , there is a slightly saline character and a touch of praline on the finish. This wine is dry, voluptuous, and capable of great ageing potential, if you can hold out that long!
