Info about the grape variety

Grape variety: Plant Robert
Indigenous | 10 HA in Switzerland (0,07%)

Plant Robert is an old red grape variety from Lavaux. Long forgotten, there were only a few plants left on rare plots in the Epesses region. The intervention of several Lavaux winegrowers has helped to preserve this grape from extinction. Plant Robert is a mutation of Gamay with more concentrated and spicy aromas which has adapted to the climate and terroir of Lavaux. This grape variety produces wines with excellent aging potential and in great vintages it can easily improve for ten years.
