Les Perlines Valais Syrah 2020

SyrahSession#2Wine#1
Ruby, Violin, translucent and vibrant color. Gilliard is a Swiss domain in Valais. Cuvée honoring the fruit. Seductive nose on the freshness of youthful Syrahs: violet, lupine, blueberry and mountain berries... with aeration, pepper imposes itself along the entire length of the palate carrying a loose body without looking like it. The acidity is lively and brings charm to this tasting. The winemaking is fine and controlled. Northern expression of the syrah full of nuances, with contained strength.

Robe Rubis, Violine, translucide et éclatante.
Gilliard est un domaine Suisse du Valais. Cuvée mettant le fruit à l’honneur. Nez séduisant sur la fraicheur des Syrah de jeunesse: violette, lupin, myrtille et baies des montages.. avec l’aération le poivre s’impose sur toute la longueur du palais portant
un corps ample sans en avoir l’air. L’acidité est vive et apporte du charme à cette dégustation. La vinification est fine et maîtrisée. Expression septentrionale de la syrah tout en nuances, avec une force contenue.

We both liked it and would drink it again. It does need to be cold. — 22 days ago

Valais Petite Arvine 2020

Nice petit arvine. Was having it with fondue after a few Glühwein, so not going to even try to describe it. — a month ago

Trésors de Famille Syrah 2020

SyrahTastingDay#2
A very fresh and refined expression of syrah in a moutain climate. The dress is translucent on purple shades typical of the grape varieties. In the mouths, small mountain berries are accompanied by notes of sweet spices such as cinnamon cloves. With aeration, the wine unfolds well with precise and generous tannins. A lot of finesse. 🇨🇭

Une expression très fraîche et raffinée de la syrah en climat de montagne. La robe est translucide sur des teintes pourpres typiques du cépages. En bouches les petites baies de montagne sont accompagnées de notes d’épices douces type girofle cannel. Avec de l’aération le vin se déploie bien avec des tanins précis et généreux. Beaucoup de finesse. 🇨🇭

The Domaine de La Rochette from Switzerland is better, but it is $90. No deals on Swiss PN!

L'Alpage Fendant

Clean pear nose.
Quaffably pleasant.
Enough acid to pair with light fare.
Can be enjoyed on its own too.
