Savoie and Switzerland

2013 Marie Therese Chappaz Ermitage President Troillet

The mountainous hillsides of Savoie, one of the most visually stunning wine regions in all of France, offer a wonderful and unique variety of aromatic and fresh white wines. Additionally, the terraced Swiss Valais region is featured here. The relative obscurity of these regions among American wine lovers is due to change......i'm doing my part!

Price: $75.00

From the 90-120 year old vines in les Claives of gnarly, corkscrew shape pruned Ermitage or Marsanne. This is incredibly texturally rich, with a powerful mineral spine giving it shape and allowing it to finish airy and perfumey. This is another example of what a spectacular vineyard this is, but in an entirely other exotic Marsanne register. Another Grand cru caliber wine that I was unable to procure last year that she has graciously consented to share. This would blow people's mind served blind in a nothern Rhone/Hermitage tasting.
The tasting note from the Chappaz website: "Beautiful golden color with hints of green. Intense nose, very complex, in a rare aromatic pepper, cinnamon, fresh noble leather, apricot, almond. The palate is full bodied, intense, long and ends sleek and cool way . A promising aging potential." - Chappaz website
