2019 Valle d’Aosta “Fumin”

Château Feuillet
Discount Eligible $39.00
SOLD OUT

Fumin is another compelling, yet extremely rare grape variety endemic to the Valle d’Aosta. From the very first deep purple splash, Château Feuillet’s rendition carries vivid wild berry notes of an almost startling vibrancy—it is simply bursting with juicy fresh fruit! With some air, subtle hints of stones, graphite, herbs, and smoke emerge, providing intrigue in addition to sheer pleasure. Heightened aromatics and tangy acidity betray its origins high in the Alps: Fumin truly is, as Feuillet’s vigneron Maurizio Fiorano puts it, “an age-old pearl of local enology.”

Inspiring Thirst

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!
