Description

Details

Domaine Marie-Therese Chappaz mixed case of 6 bottles. Biodynamic wines. This little half dozen of stunning wine gives an insight into the diverse flavours and complexity of the Chappaz wines. In Switzerland 98% of the wine is consumed on the domestic market with only 2% making it overseas. As a result, Swiss wine is a rarity and the best wines demand high prices. Chappaz wines are indeed some of the best. This is a half dozen to be treated lovingly with some exceptional Gruyere cheese, fresh water fish or some expensive cuts of lamb or beef for the reds. Nice discount built into the price.



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.
