Grain Mariage Marie-Therese Chappaz 2017 biodynamic wine from Switzerland, Humagne Rouge, Cornalin and Gamaret, profound, rich, complex and intellectual wine. Deep nose of black cherry, mint, prune, full bodied but still amazingly precise, this is a wine for ageing for sure. Although still tight in youth, this type of wine is intriguing to drink now, it entices the drinker, gives little away but hints at much to come in the future. Wine of this quality from small Biodynamic producers like Marie-Therese are rare treats to care for and open from time to time when you really want something extra special and stylish. Bordeaux and Burgundy can disappoint, these truly natural, beautifully elegant wines do not.

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, crystalline 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 33rd vintage, Marie Therese Chappaz continues to produce over twenty different Cuvee of world class wine which are highly sort after all over Switzerland and around the world.
