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.🇨🇭

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

Valais Cornalin 2018

We ended the evening with this beautiful Swiss testimony that has nothing to envy to fine French wines. My wine-loving friends and I appreciated this beautiful balance between the freshness of a young wine and the depth of a grape variety reminiscent of Cabernet-franc or Syrah from altitude. A greedy and dense wine, on black fruits with a nice salivating freshness, reminding us that although confidential, Swiss production should be taken seriously. Well done, it's superb! Nice finesse between fruit / caramel and spices.

Nous avons fini la soirée sur ce beau témoignage helvétique qui n’a rien à envier aux beaux vins français. Mes amis amateurs de vins et moi-même avons apprécié ce bel équilibre entre fraîcheur d’un vin vin jeune et profondeur d’un cépage qui rappelle le Cabernet-franc ou la Syrah d’altitude. Un vin gourmand et dense, sur les fruits noirs avec une belle fraîcheur salivante, nous rappelant que bien que confidentielle, la production suisse est à prendre au sérieux. Bravo c’est superbe! Belle finesse entre fruits/caramel et épices.

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. — 16 days ago

Riesling x Sylvaner 2007

Incredible wine. Muller-Thurgau on another level. Apricots, medicinal, minerals, fresh flowers and an alpine stream. Maybe I’m projecting? But this is serious stuff. What a find. — 2 months ago
