Details

Dole La Liaudisaz Marie-Therese Chappaz 2017 biodynamic wine from Switzerland, Gamay, Pinot Noir, classic Valais red wine, smooth, stylish and delicious. Dole is the traditional red for Sunday roast in the Canton du Valais. It is a lovely soft easy red wine made from Gamay and Pinot Noir. In the hands of Marie-Therese, it becomes a more serious wine with the capacity to age and a finesse and cool precision rarely achieved in the region. Aromas of Morello cherry, gooseberry, almonds and sweet spices characterise the nose and develop in the elegant palate which is both silky and firm. The finish is complex and leaves you thinking and wondering how the wine would develop after some bottle age. Any roast meat but best with white meats and stews made with rabbit, chicken or veal.

Domaine Marie-Therese Chappaz, lies on the south facing slopes of the beautiful Valais region of Switzerland just above the town of Fully. Wine production in the region dates back to the 2nd century BC and the vines carpet the lower slopes of the high mountains and climb as high as 1150 msl. The climate is hot in the summer and bitterly cold in winter with over 300 days of sunshine per year. The mountains provide a diverse terroir including loess, granit, alluvial and clay, limestone with a multitude of grapes from the well known Gamay and Pinot Noir to lesser known Cornalin and Petite Arvine. These conditions and such diversity make for a wide range of wine styles and exciting flavours.

Marie Therese took over her family estate when it was just 1.5 hectares back in the mid 80s and has worked biodynamically for over 20 years. She has built a reputation for elegant, crystalline wines with depth and style which drink well young but also age well. Her passion and commitment to quality have earned her international recognition and in 2016, her estate was listed in the Gault Millau guide as one of the best 100 wineries in the world. Today she farms 11 hectares of vines on the slopes above her house in Fully and in the nearby villages, Charrat, Leytron and Chamoson, 5 of which are only reachable on foot or in a small cable car. Now on her 31st vintage, she continues to produce over 20 different Cuvee of world class wine which are highly sort after all over Switzerland and around the world.
