More about this wine

An incredible blend of the best of the native Valais grapes. Robert's three blends are a legend in the Valais, revealed each year at an art festival organised by the domaine. Silver medal at the Vinalies Internationales de Paris 2011.

<p>Ben says (September 2017): This blend of Cornalin and Humagne Rouge is one of the peaks of swiss red wine and a real treat to enjoy. It is an elegant dark ruby in the glass and a thing of beauty.</p>
<p>Dark red and black berries dominate the nose but there is also some burnt caramel, spice, cedar wood, cigar box and hints of much more.</p>
<p>In the mouth, the black berries prevail and are joined by dark chocolate, black pepper, hints of vanilla, liquorice, coffee and more burnt caramel.</p>
<p>The finish goes on and on with the berries continuing but the darker tertiary flavours pushing through again and again.</p>
<p>This is a big wine and deserves a lot of attention.</p>
