Ticino Merlot 2014

Really nice Ticino Merlot! I’ve had plenty of good ones, but this one is a bit unique - in a good way, but can’t put a finger on it. — a month ago

Clos Du Mont Les Grands Mur Diolinoir 2018

Beautiful bottle in the style of which our Swiss friends have the secret. Diolinoir grape variety reminiscent of Syrah with less violette notes. Black fruits, sharp acidity, and drying tannins. Spicy. Flexible and marked by liquorice. Good balance. 🇨🇭

Belle quille dans le style dont nos amis suisses ont le secret. Diolinoir cépage évoquant la Syrah avec les notes de violette en moins. Fruits noirs, acidité vive, et tanins asséchants. Épicés. Souple et marqué par la réglisse. Bel équilibre.🇨🇭

Gantenbein

Pinot Noir 2019

Typical Gantenbein nose, smokeyness, high acidity, immense perfume. Your nose expects a medium to full weight wine and what is light Pinot. Better than 2018, more like a 2017. Will drink beautifully for the next 10 years. One of my favorites. — 22 days ago

Bianco del Ticino DOC Chardonnay 2017

Fairly stunning chardonnay. Needs a little time still to integrate or smooth out but it’s not a heavy-toast disjointedness. Could be really epic in 3-5 years. — 17 days ago

Hurlevent Pinot Noir

Jane and Marc both liked it. It may be a little bit sweeter and more acidic than A typical Pinot. We both would drink it again. We had the 2017 vintage. From coop. — 7 days ago

Clavau Les Grans Murs Cornalin

Cornalin: Swiss grape variety. Ruby dress, shiny. Very nice balance between primary notes of red fruits, and rearing notes evoking caramel and cinnamon. A parcellar cuvée carried by a tense minerality balancing the tasting. The final displays semi-bodied tannins. Somewhere between Grenache and a Pinot-noir type Marsannay, Mercurey or Givry

Cornalin: cépage Suisse endémique. Robe rubis, brillante. Très bel équilibre entre des notes primaires fruits rouges, et notes d’élevage évoquant le caramel et la cannelle. Cuvée parcellaire portée par une minéralité tendue équilibrant la dégustation. La finale déploie des tanins semi-corsés. Quelque part entre la Grenache et un Pinot-noir type Marsannay, Mercurey ou Givry
