Maurice Gay 1883, Diolinoir

Red wine | Valais AOC

Another Swiss creation!
Created in Switzerland in 1970, Diolinoir is the result of a cross between the obscure Rouge de Diolly (real name Robin Noir, not much better known!) and Pinot Noir. Often used in blends, it is found here in all its purity. It offers a nose with aromas of wild strawberry, blackcurrant and blackberry, rose and violet with notes of oriental spices. On the palate this red wine is fine, crunchy, with supple tannins. It seems that he is doing very well on his own!

Cave St-Pierre

Cave St-Pierre

It's the wine at the heart of the Valais. It's the sky, powerful, indomitable. The earth in the hollow of this valley is rich. The stone, the mountains that rise like statues several kilometres into the air. The know-how of those who work the vines and the traditional grape varieties with love. A sip that expresses all this intensely. Give in to the temptation of the terroir in its raw state.
