2014 Valle d’Aosta Rosso “Torrette Supérieur”

Château Feuillet

2014 Valle d’Aosta  Rosso “Torrette Supérieur” Château Feuillet - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
The Torrette denomination designates reds made primarily from the Petit Rouge grape, grown high in the mountains of Valle d’Aosta in the shadow of Monte Bianco. Typically, these wines are light, floral, and teeming with energy, but here we have a slightly different creature. To create this Torrette Supérieur, the grapes are dried for several days after harvest, then pressed and aged in barrel to give an equally lively red with a bit more guts and bass notes. Feuillet’s rendition features whiffs of cracked pepper, bursting wild forest berries, and crunchy mountain minerals. There is nothing else quite like it.

About Valle d'Aosta

Italy’s smallest region by surface area and by annual production, Valle d’Aosta is also one of its most strikingly beautiful. In the heart of the Alps bordering France and Switzerland, this is a stark landscape dominated by jagged, snow-capped peaks, where tiny terraced vineyard parcels cling to steep, rocky slopes of sand and alluvial deposits. Winemaking here dates back to Roman times, and today a growing number of small-scale producers persist with the heroic kind of viticulture required to brave this extreme terrain.

In the shadow of the Mont Blanc, the Valle d’Aosta runs west to east, providing excellent southern exposure to the vineyards on its northern slopes. In spite of the altitude—these are some of Europe’s highest vineyards—the hot, dry summers provide conditions in which a number of indigenous varieties, along with others of French or Swiss origin, truly thrive. Petite Arvine, Prié Blanc, Petit Rouge, Fumin, and Cornalin are just a few of the grapes responsible for the region’s whites and reds, which range from bright juicy, aromatic, and mineral-driven to powerful and rustic in character.

Château Feuillet represents our first Valle d’Aosta import. With its singular wines from an absolutely breathtaking environment, it is certainly a region to get excited about.

A good doctor prescribed the wine of Nuits-Saint-Georges to the Sun King, Louis XIV, when he suffered an unknown maladie. When the king’s health was restored the tasty remedy enjoyed a vogue at court. Lord, send me a doctor like that!
