2015 Valle d’Aosta “Torrette”

Château Feuillet

2015 Valle d’Aosta “Torrette” Château Feuillet - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
This Torrette is what Anthony and I like to refer to as a “border” wine—wines made in regions that are close to international borders and therefore take influence from the country next door as well as their “official” one. If you look at a map of Valle d’Aosta, you’ll see more village names in French than Italian, like Saint-Pierre, where Château Feuillet is located. And, to make a sweeping generalization, this wine even tastes more French than Italian! The dried flowers and peppery nose are reminiscent of Saint-Joseph, and there’s a bright gulpable fruitiness, not unlike that of a young Côte de Brouilly.

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.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
