Details

Grain Noble Marsanne Marie Therese Chappaz 2017 375ml, biodynamic wine, unique vineyard site producing wines of sheer quality, depth and finesse, an outstanding dessert wine to rival any in the world. Les Claives is one of the most difficult sites to cultivate in the Valais, and perhaps even the world. There is no road up to it. It ranges from 450 to 650 meters in altitude. Due to its steep slope, loamy deposits formed by the wind accumulate in the flatter parts while elsewhere, the soil is rocky and dry. The Claives appellation, with its successive terraces, is emblematic of this local hillside. The wines produced here are of exceptional quality and are a labour of passion and love and the Marsanne taken originally from northern Rhone hillsides has adapted very well to the granitic terroir and unique climate to produce fruit of incredible depth, complexity and minerality. A finer bottle of dessert wine would be difficult to find.

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.
