Les Bernunes Valais Heida Païen 2017

The Swiss name for the varietal in this little gem is “Heida”. As the story goes there’s a strong probability that as the vines were shared, passed and re-planted around the Swiss region decades ago, what began as Traminer evolved into what I’ve got under my nose. Lush pear and stone lead the way to a truly remarkably smooth and voluptuous palate. Meat on its bones, and in all the right, graceful ways. The palate leads (and holds) through the lengthy finish that’s balanced beautifully between a sort of creamy presence and juicy acidity.

Les Titans Defi Noir Cornalin Blend 2014

This is not a merlot blend. It is Cornalin, Diolinoir, and Syrah. Loads of tar and smoke, on the nose and in the taste. Heavy Syrah in the blend. Very smooth. Mid length finish. — 25 days ago

Domaine de la Ville

Parcelle No 982 Sélection Nature Grand Cru Gamay 2017

One my favorite and most talented vignerons in La Côte. Corentin grows its vines according to biondynamic principles and for his cuvées nature the winemaking approach is particularly minimalist. The vineyards are wonderful with lots of biodiversity and facing the Mont-Blanc... The overall sensation is that of youth and of a sweet day of spring. The Gamay juice is pure with the fruit coming forward with a beautiful nose rich with red berries and some sweet spices. The taste is clean with good balance, excellent minerality and a spicy finish. Today it showed lovely paired with a wild boar sausage, spätzli, caramelized pear and strawberry and rhubarb jam. — a month ago
