Special notes

It was in1896 that Urbain Germanier planted his vineyard and established his wine-growing business in Balavaud, a municipality in the heart of Valais and belonging to Vétroz. Later on, his three sons Francis, Paul and Charles took over at the helm and their wines soon gained a reputation as among the best in Valais. Today, Jean-René Germanier and Gilles Besse, two young oenologists, are the third and fourth generation to produce the wines.

    madame - Plus que décevant... arrière-goût de lie (?) très désagréable. Pour une adepte de la petite arvine, je ne rachèterai jamais du Germanier :-/
