Grain Arvine Chappaz Fully Marie Therese Chappaz, Biodynamic wine, full bodied, complex, mineral, racy, burgundy alternative. The new 2021 vintage, just landed, the wine is initially discreet on the nose, violet and rhubarb, notes which after a few moments give way to a subtle brioche mixture. The palate is dry, characteristically bitter, yet rich and mouth coating, a wine for sensual pleasure. Truly delicious wine for special occasions (or everyday if you can afford it!), ideal territory for a big birthday dinner or Christmas, a wine which delivers on all levels, rich and round so works as a crowd pleaser yet a very distinguished wine with complexity and depth to intrigue ardent wine lovers. Eat Grain Arvine Chappaz with very good chicken dishes, rabbit, terrines, some cheeses, (not too strong), fleshy white fish with rich sauces. The 2021 is very young and will age very well.

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, up to over 1000 metres.  The climate is hot in summer and bitterly cold in winter.  There are over 300 days of sunshine per year. The mountains provide a diverse terroir including loess, granite, alluvial, clay and limestone. There are 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 Chappaz took over her family estate when it was just 1.5 hectares back in the mid 80s.  She has worked using biodynamic farming for over 20 years. She has built a reputation for elegant yet full bodied wines with depth and style which age very well. Her passion and commitment to quality have earned her international recognition.  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 nearby villages, Charrat, Leytron and Chamoson.  Five of the vineyards are only reachable on foot or in a small cable car. Now on her 34th vintage, Marie Therese Chappaz continues to produce over twenty different Cuvee of world class wine.  Her wines are highly sort after all over Switzerland and around the world.
