This is a beautiful blend of Paien and Petite Arvine that presents notes of peach kernel fruit and apricot with gourmet notes of vanilla thanks to aging in oak barrels. A fine and elegant wine with a slightly lemony finish.

Info about the grape variety

Grape variety: Petite Arvine
Indigenous | 218 HA in Switzerland (1,49%)

Originally from Valais, is mentioned in records dating back to 1602 under the name of Arvena. La Petite Arvine is almost exclusively cultivated in Valais where it produces dry and mellow wines with citrus aromas enhanced on the palate by a touch of salty minerality.

Grape variety: Païen
Traditional (planted before 1900) | 197 HA in Switzerland (1,35%)

Originating from the vast region covering the north-east of France and the south-east of Germany, Savagnin Blanc is a very old variety of grape. In Switzerland, it was recorded for the first time in 1586 in the Upper Valais under the name Heida. It is a very old name translated as Pagan (pagan) in Lower Valais, with reference to the period of Hellenistic antiquity. Its cultivation is constantly increasing because Heida gives an elegant, very structured white wine, with notes of citrus and exotic fruits, with great aging potential.
