Le Lézard Rouge

In stock
Switzerland  Chablais 

This is something almost unique - a ripasso-style wine of Pinot Noir over Garanoir. Created for the 100th anniversary of the company with a label designed by artist Hans Erni, this should become a classic.

I must say I fell in love with the Lézard rouge. It does start with the label which hints at something minimalist and yet bold. Spot on.

The wine is really, well, Pinot Noir as an undercover agent - it intrigues, it delights, it then pulls the rug from under your feet. It then picks you up and smuggles you over the border in the rug... err... maybe I took that metaphor a little too far. 

And if you're not a wine geek, it's just a deliciously fruity but bold wine to share over dinner.

Flo says (July 2018): I have had dreams about this wine. When I am lucky enough to try it, it is a wine to savour and adore. Highly recommend.

Tasting Notes

A dark red colour, the wine has a generous nose of ripe berries, coffee and toasted nuts on a background note of vanilla.

In the mouth this is a powerful and concentrated wine, still very much Pinot Noir but with a touch of wildness and fruit from the Garanoir.
