2015 Valle d'Aosta Bianco “Petite Arvine”

Château Feuillet

2015 Valle d'Aosta Bianco “Petite Arvine” Château Feuillet - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

The Valle d’Aosta’s steep granite slopes near Monte Bianco are among the world’s most impressive vineyards in the context of man vs.nature. Germany’s Mosel and France’s Haute-Savoie come to mind, as well. These vines  are literally clinging to mountainsides. A Swiss variety, Petite Arvine, found a home here, and delivers a wonderfully aromatic white with pleasant fleshiness to go along with the bracing, saline finish that cleanses the palate like a gurgling mountain stream. –Dixon Brooke

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.

Great winemakers, great terroirs, there is never any hurry. And I no longer buy into this idea of “peak” maturity. Great winemakers, great terroirs, their wines offer different pleasures at different ages.
