Degustation notes

Bright golden yellow colour, an opulent bouquet of honey with delicate aromas of Flétry and spicy ginger notes, juniper and hints of beeswax, ample on the palate, very aromatic, well balanced with an intense fruity concentration, a pleasant sweetness accompanied by solid acidity. A lovely, sweet aromatic Valais specialty.

Special notes

The family business was founded in 1944 by Charles Favre and his sons. His son, Jean-Pierre has managed it since 1975. It stores grapes from 80 hectares of vines, mostly produced by longtime suppliers. The Hurlevent product line denotes a range of specialties whose emblems are Dole, Black Noir and Gamay.
