Cuvée issue d'une vieille vigne du cépage Pinot Gris macéré pendant 13 jours.

ATTENTION vin rosé suite à macération, dont l'aromatique se rapproche plus d'un rouge, loin des standard du Pinot Gris en Valais ;-)

This wine was made in Switzerland, naturally, without any synthetic inputs in the vineyard or in the cellar, but with the help of herbal teas, fermented extracts and compost tea to accompany the vines throughout the season.

From the purchase of grapes on a parcel that I worked all year, it is the beginning of the adventure that wants it to be in "haute-couture" trade, eventually this parcel should integrate the domain in order to be certified in organic and biodynamic.

The legal start of the conversion to organic and biodynamic farming will take place for this cuvée over the next few vintages, even if by 2022 it is clear that everything has been done according to these farming methods.

A zen and gastronomic rosé ! This purple-pink pinot gris has a fine, elegant nose of kirsh and citrus. The palate has a lemony dynamic, with raspberry, kirsh, and a wedge finish. A very fruity wine that will go well with lightly spiced Asian dishes or sushi.


Can be kept for 3 to 5 years (in good temperature and humidity conditions).

Vintage 2022 in Valais

The year 2022 was characterised by exceptional weather conditions and a scorching summer. It was also characterised by a very low level of rainfall throughout the vegetation and grape ripening period. Coupled with the high temperatures, this phenomenon favoured high evaporation, greatly accentuating the water deficit in the soil and making it necessary, in certain situations, to irrigate more than usual.

These hot and dry weather conditions particularly benefited the vines and were very unfavourable to fungal diseases and other pests. After budburst in mid-April, the vines grew rapidly and continuously. Flowering began in mid-May, two weeks ahead of the ten-year average, and the harvest began at the end of August.

With 26 million kilos of red grapes and 20 million kilos of white grapes, the 2022 Valais harvest is close to that recorded in 2019 and 10% above the ten-year average. As a reminder, the very low 2021 harvest, heavily affected by frost and mildew, produced 22.7 million kilos.

The natural sugar content of the 2022 vintage is close to the ten-year average for Chasselas (81 °Oe), Sylvaner (94 °Oe), Pinot Noir (95 °Oe) and Gamay (95 °Oe).

The quality of the wines is very promising. A somewhat surprising freshness for this hot and early vintage gives them energy and vitality, balancing the greediness in a very delicate way.

The white wines have character with a beautiful aromatic exuberance. On the palate, the fruitiness is brilliant, combining floral notes and ripe fruit, while revealing a surprising freshness. The red wines are full-bodied yet subtle. They express themselves in a rich palette of black fruits and warm spices, with beautiful silky and melted tannins.
