More about this wine

Food matches
White meats, salmon in puff pastry, cream sauces.

A complex example of Amigne which unites power with velvety softness. Pale-yellow wine with crystalline brilliance and an intense nose of ripe fruit and lime flower (linden). Lively and full-bodied on the palate with a harmonious finish. Dry and unique.

Ben says (December 2016): It is hard to add or detract from the notes above. This wine keeps it's youth and strength as the years pass but some tertiary notes will be forthcoming soon, I am sure.



In Depth

The appellation "Vétroz Grand Cru," is limited to four grape varieties and designates wines produced according to regulations, established in 1993, which require limited yields and rigorous standards of vinification. For each vintage a commission of judges inspects and certifies all plots designated as Grand Cru.

Tasting Notes
