Grosjean Frères

Vigne Rovettaz Vallée d'Aoste Petite Arvine 2020

Here’s a serious mountain wine that is LOVELY!! 🏔️🏔️

It offers a bouquet of vibrant, high-toned fruit qualities, such as grapefruit, mandarin orange peel, lemon zest, pear, just ripe white peach, and apricot, layered with white blossom, acacia, herbal, crushed stone, wet gravel, cheese rind, and delicate cream notes. 🤩🤩 It’s dry with a firm structure including medium(+) acidity and medium alcohol (13.5%).

It’s the Grosjean Frères, Vigne Rovettaz, Vallée d’Aoste AOC, Petite Arvine (2020).

The Grosjean Frères winery has been owned and operated by the Grosjean family since 1968. Today, it’s the father, his five sons, and their cousins, who collectively treasure their vineyards like precious heirlooms of the earth, meticulously tending to them, while employing certified organic farming practices.

These vineyards are located in the stunning Alpine region of the Vallée d’Aoste AOC in far northwest of Italy (north of Piedmont), sharing a border with both France (to the northwest) and Switzerland (to the northeast). 

For context, Mont Blanc (15,780 ft elevation) calls the Vallée d’Aoste its home…  please take me there!

Surrounded by this dramatic landscape, you’ll find the Rovettaz Vineyard, where Grosjean Frères grows its Petite Arvine grapes for this complex, textured wine that saw sur lie (with bâtonnage), and partial French oak, aging for 8 months prior to bottling.

Cin cin to this beauty! 🥂🥂

@Vanessa A great cool/cold climate district Vanessa. We all must drink more wines from there.


@Bob McDonald Couldn’t agree more! It’s a small but mighty appellation, producing such a wide variety of black and white grapes, making a range of beautiful styles of wine!

Enfer D'Arvier Petit Rouge 2020

The name of this 100% Petite Rouge refers to the intense heat the vineyard receives during the summer months. Medium ruby color. Aromas and flavors of dark cherries, hot stones, dried violets, black pepper and minerals. Quite full and lush but the gripping acidity balances this wine nicely. Light tannins and Quite rustic in style. Thanks to Ron B for opening this bottle. — a month ago

@David T A very fun night/weekend with great wines. But, more importantly, a terrific annual event to help raise money for Alzheimer research.

Twice as nice when you can enjoy such wines while simultaneously raising money to fight a horrific condition.
