Details

Fendant Coteaux de Plamont Marie Therese Chappaz 2019, Biodynamic wine, single vineyard, dry, medium bodied, elegant, long length, slight bitterness to the wine but with added depth and richness which lefts the wine and makes it very gastronomic. Located above the Claives parcel, the Plamont hillside is a much softer slope from whence the name “le Mont Plat” (flat mountain in English) is derived. Called the 'red lands' by winemakers in the past, the rich, loamy soil - which is red in colour - carried by the wind has accumulated here over the centuries since the last glacial era. A rich wine with beautiful minerality, the granite terroir brings a certain verticality and precision of acidity and tension. With citrus, citrus zest, peach and apricot notes, this wine takes time to fully express itself so will mature very well over the next 3-5 years. It is superb for richer fish, scallops, monkfish or smoked fish. In youth, open it and decant a few hours before serving.

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.
