Cuvée presentation

En plus d'être une icône de son appellation Valais, la vigneronne Suisse est aussi passée maîtresse dans l'art de la vinification de vins moelleux et liquoreux. Elle propose ici un flacon d'une très grande rareté réalisée à partir de marsanne âgée d'une soixantaine d'années et dont les baies botrytisées ont été récoltées minutieusement. On apprécie son bouquet intense et pur à la fois révélant des notes complexes et variées (champignon, rose, amande, noisette, zeste d'agrume, fruit confit, mirabelle) ainsi que sa texture ample et généreuse qui s'achève longuement sur une légère salinité.

Information about domain Chappaz

Marie-Thérèse Chappaz took over the running of the domain in 1987, which at the time was composed of a hectare and a half of vines in the Valais in Switzerland. She has expanded the domain – now 10 hectares – spread out in a patchwork of small parcels on hillsides, at between 400 and 600 metres above sea level. The vineyard has Demeter biodynamic certification. This renowned winemaker has been recognized for contributing to the reputation of Swiss wines: in 1996, she was named ‘winemaker of the year’ by Gault&Millau, then ‘icon of Swiss wine’ in 2016. She produces exceptional biodynamic wines. The domaine is particularly known for its production of Petite Arvine, a very rare white grape variety native to Switzerland.
