More about this wine

Food matches
An ideal apéritif. Goes well with asparagus, fish dishes or soft cheeses.

This wine comes from vineyards on the hillsides around Chamoson where vines grow on schist soils. The 2009 vintage followed a cold winter and the vegetative cycle was late starting, but caught up later in the season due to a very hot May and June. An erratic summer with periods of rain followed and a cool September allowed slow maturation promoting the concentration of aromas. Vinification was traditional, ageing in stainless steel tanks and without malolactic fermentation. Serve at 10-12°C.



Tasting Notes

2009: .

A beautiful golden straw yellow with aromas of lemongrass and resin. On the palate, good attack, rich with good structure. Mineral and creamy with yeasty notes.
