2021 Valle d’Aosta Petite Arvine

Château Feuillet
Discount Eligible $37.00
SOLD OUT

The Valle d’Aosta is a deep valley that runs east to west, closed off just before the French border by some of the highest peaks in the Alps. Vineyards here are like little gardens clinging to steep south-facing mountainsides, where only a thin layer of sandy topsoil lines the hard granite bedrock. Abundant direct sun and cold nights amplify the aromatic expression of the local grapes while preserving zingy acidity, a recipe for delicate, perfumed wines that dance energetically across the palate. Sipping Feuillet’s Petite Arvine evokes the euphoria of running through a field of Alpine wildflowers—admittedly a cliché, until you feel the exacting mineral purity of this floral bianco wash over your senses.

Sampler Includes:

2022 Valle d’Aosta Moscato Bianco  $35
Raised in stainless steel, Moscato produces aromas that are fiercely locked into this bottling. Honeyed, yet bone-dry, it has a hint of chestnut and would be as charming for an apéritif as with a cheese or dessert course.

2022 Valle d’Aosta Traminer Aromatico  $35

Expressive and pedigreed Feuillet’s Traminer might be the white Burgundy equivalent of the bunch. It spends some time on its lees, giving it a rounder mouthfeel. Pair it with fattier fish or slices of salty speck.

2022 Valle d’Aosta Petite Arvine $37
A grape of Swiss origin, Petite Arvine is a versatile white, persistent in length with a mouthwatering and crystalline minerality. It soaks up the sun but maintains a flinty edge.

2021 Valle d’Aosta Rosso Torrette Superieur  $37
A bright and plummy wine with a velvety texture, made from the native Petit Rouge variety. Serve this beauty with bolder fare in need of a refreshing companion.

2022 Valle d’Aosta Rosso Cornalin  $38

A spicy, smoky red with rustic undertones, Cornalin has pretty black fruit and is a great match for well-seasoned sausages and other charred meats.

2021 Valle d’Aosta Rosso Fumin  $43
A robust and pleasantly tannic rosso, Fumin has a floral quality with a bit of a bite—similar to peppery Syrahs of the northern Rhône.

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
