Torrette, Valle D'aosta

Grosjean Frères

Torrette Petit Rouge Blend 2010

Simply put, the best $20 bottle of wine I’ve had in a very long time, maybe ever. 80% petite rouge, 20% other grapes like fumin, mayolet, and doucet. The nose was tremendous, rising from the glass like perfume, elegant but dense and persistent. Reminded me of a 1er red burgundy meets aged Barolo nose and palate…tertiary red cherry and berries, crushed dried flowers, subtle sandalwood spice, really, really complex! Age your Torrette! — 12 days ago

Definitely more ripeness than I’ve noticed in past vintages. Tbh I might have called this willamette valley blind. Still delicious — 21 days ago

Grosjean Gamay 2019

Shows the flexibility of this French grape out of its comfort zone.

Cool tempered forestry Italian version from the alps.

Earthy, fruity, elegant, perfumed.

Blanc Flapi Prié Blanc

Dessert wine, but not extremely sweet
Very fresh
On the nose is almondy and cheese plus amazingly floral as if you are on an Alps highland where cows are free range
It reminds me of a Malga Toma di Gressonay
On the palate is very citrusy somewhere between an orange rind and a grapefruit plus all the flowers still there and a almondy finish
Very very good
Production is so limited i can't even hope to get another bottle unless i go to visit Val d'Aosta

Rouge de Vallée 2019

Blend with the local Nebbiolo. Medium–light. Good mountain minerality and a little funky. Tar + roses, graphite, some brambles, lush apple, touch of stewed strawberry, mild tannins and acidity but nice and savory. From Amaro Spirits & Wine. 08/31/21 — 24 days ago

Vallée d'Aoste Prëmetta 2020

Don't let the light color fool you. Had this is Chinese food and the floral, strawberries, orange, and vanilla notes coming from the glass. Rolls down very easy and love the light and pronounce peach and rose flavor on the palate. — a month ago

Valle d'Aosta DOC Fumin 2018

As always: dark as blood, but on the palate, smooth as silk. Traces of violets, plums, and what is the right amount of acidity. — a month ago

Les Crêtes

Valle d'Aosta Pinot Nero 2019

The winery is located in Aymavilles with the cellar lying one mile from Monte Bianco tunnel. Ruby with aromas fresh red fruits and floral notes. On the palate flavors of strawberry and sweet cherry with tea and black pepper. Fine tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit and spice. Nice! Drink young, no aging benefit. Good value! — a month ago
