2022 Valle d’Aosta Torrette

Château Feuillet
Discount Eligible $31.00
AT CART MAX

As with Manni Nössing, who lives mere miles from the Austrian border and whose first language is German, Château Feuillet inhabits a corner of Italy bordering France and Switzerland where many of the town, family, and grape names—as well as one of the two official languages—are French. The starring varieties in this Torrette, however (mostly Petit Rouge with a splash of Mayolet), have no counterparts in France. This uniquely Valdostano red is characterized by a charming freshness and a spicy, red-berry core. Pour it alongside a mushroom risotto with Fontina, the creamy Valle d’Aosta cheese, for a sublime regional pairing.

Sampling wine out of the barrel.

When buying red Burgundy, I think we should remember:

1. Big wines do not age better than light wine.
2. A so-called great vintage at the outset does not guarantee a great vintage for the duration.
3. A so-called off vintage at the outset does not mean the wines do not have a brilliant future ahead of them.
4. Red Burgundy should not taste like Guigal Côte-Rôtie, even if most wine writers wish it would.
5. Don’t follow leaders; watch yer parking meters.
