Enfer D'Arvier Petit Rouge 2021

Some wine shop described as “blackberry, liquorice, smoke, mint”. Usually find these descriptions BS but this one seemed about right. Really enjoyed this with fatty brisket braised with Mexican flavors. Yum. — 16 days ago

Les Crêtes

Valle d'Aosta Pinot Nero 2020

Wonderful high elevation Pinot. Light ruby in color. Aromas of wild red berries and brambly herbs. More strawberry on the palate with additional notes of black tea, those ever present fresh herbs and a nice mineral touch on the finish. Medium bodied and bright. Beautiful velvety structure. Good stuff. Thank you for sharing, Ron B! — 5 months ago

Valée d'Aosta Prié Blanc 2020

I’m not sure where my previous note went.
Just when you thought you knew Italy, up pops this might as well be SwissFrench alpine darling from the Vallée D’Aoste.
Blanc de Morgex et de la salle. The town/village of Morgex lies just below Mt. Blanc. The Prié Blanc vines thrive in soil that has not known phylloxera.
Stones, herbs,and lemons all wrapped up in a rather electric pkg. I think drink young. Cold, the nose doesn’t have much to say past stone fruit, maybe rainier cherries.,But the palate is pow! Lemons, herbs, mineral, high acid and refreshing. With fried Branzino, perfect!
Always a sucker for high altitude Italian.

Most of the notes for this wine are under “Ermes Pavese”. It would be great if Delectable could consolidate duplicate (or more) entries.

Vallée d'Aoste Prëmetta 2021

Quite an interesting new varietal for me. Unusual garnet color with some brownish tints. High elevation fruit. Looks more like a dark rose’ than a traditional red. Aromas and flavors of cherry and strawberry fruit. Subtle hints of slate, iron, orange zest and rose petals. Ripping acidity and practically no tannins. Nice flavor and light body. Took a chill very well. Fascinating and delicious! Thank you for sharing, Ron B! — 5 months ago

Vigne Tzeriat Vallee d'Aoste Pinot Noir 2015

Pale garnet, some bricking already. Overwhelmingly volatile and Bretty at first but comes together beautifully with air. Really remarkable transformation. Sour cherry, rhubarb, roses, ruby red grapefruit, herbal/vegetal notes, bitter slightly oxidative finish. Tart, sweet raspberry and floral tones increasingly predominated as the evening went on. Almost gave up on this one but I really enjoyed it—a reminder that some wines can really rebound if given a chance to breathe! — 5 months ago
