This unique terroir produces a Merlot which stands because of its power and dark fruitiness (lingonberries, blackberries), but at the same time retains its Alpine character (green tea, white pepper).


This fruit is joined on the palate by dense, velvety tannins. Delicate acidity gives the wine balance and an impressively long finish.
