Degustation notes

Bright ruby colour, a typical Pinot nose that opens with notes of spices and ripe fruit, nice woody aromas, supple with medium concentration on the attack with a beautiful aromatic range, a return to woodiness, combining elegance and finesse, expansive, with a long spicy finish.

Special notes

The 15 hectares of vines belonging to the Domaine des Virets are located amidst the terraced hills in the commune of Saint-Léonard.There, between Sion and Sierre, the sun caresses the Chasselas and Pinot Noir vines - of which some are more than 50 years old! - from The Domaine des Virets. Pierre-Alain Mathier, the owner, is from one of the richest descendent families of traditional winemakers from Valais.
