Maurice Gay 1883, Heida

White wine | Valais AOC

A grape variety with many names… and facets!
Savagnin Blanc takes the name Païen or Heida in Valais. This example from Cave St-Pierre, from vineyards on hillsides, combines power and freshness. It offers notes of candied lemon, grapefruit and fresh flowers. Both bold and tense, mineral on the palate, it is a white wine for gastronomy. At the table it is not afraid of anything and goes well with a wide variety of dishes, from a plate of raw vegetables to blue cheese and white meat.

A rich and supple attack with a well-structured body with notes of yeast, a beautiful creaminess and minerality on the finish. Over time it develops notes of nuts and rye bread.

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.
