Description

In the Clos des Corbassières, this hermitage grows within the protected dry stone walls. Pressed from very old Marsanne blanche vines, this white wine from Valais has a noble bouquet of white truffles, pears, honeycomb and pine needles as well as sweet almonds. On the palate it presents itself full-bodied, creamy and at the same time mineral. Flattering with exciting astringency and great aromatic length. In a blind tasting it can be confused with a great Burgundy! Serve this wine in wide glasses, not too cold.

Switzerland

Switzerland – A small country with enormous diversity

Switzerland is famous for its banks, watches, and cheese, but not necessarily for its wine. The Swiss didn't invent wine, but they have been extremely open and curious to it. Wine culture arrived in what is now modern Switzerland via several routes: from Marseilles to Lake Geneva and the Lower Valais region; from the Aosta Valley through the Great St. Bernard Pass to the rest of Valais; from the Rhone through Burgundy, across the Jura Mountains to Lake Constance; and from Lombardy to Ticino, and then on to Grisons.

Valais: Alpine wines with class

More than 20 varieties of grapes can yield wines in Valais that are full of character. A large number of them grow on spectacular, steep slopes. Sealed off by mighty chains of mountains, old plantings like Petite Arvine, Amigne and Cornalin have survived in Valais, and today they are highly sought-after by wine enthusiasts. The highest vineyards in Europe are also found in Valais: the Savignin vines (known here as “Heida”), rooted in the mountain community of Visperterminen.
