Special notes

The Charles Favre SA winery was founded in 1944 in Sion, in the heart of the Valais wine country. Hanny Favre took over the wineryin 1960; she was the first Valaisanne to be admitted to the association of vintners. In 1988, a global jury elected the passionate winemaker "Personality of the Year" in the field of oenology. Today, her son Jean-Pierre has taken over the family business, investing heart and soul into his work. It is not surprising that the company has grown to become a model of Swiss viticulture.

    Leider lieblich - Ich bestellte diesen Wein, weil ich vom Pinot Noir von Hurlevent sehr begeistert war.
    Leider ist dieser Wein lieblich, daher schmeckte er mir nicht.
    Ich habe ihn an Freunde weitergegeben, die liebliche Weine bevorzugen.
    Sie waren begeistert.
