Different blends according to the vintage created with the Hôtel de Ville Crissier.
The idea was born in the 1980s when Frédy Girardet and Raymond Paccot met – an encounter between terroir limestone and chef’s honed knife that led to the design of a new wine, streamlined and with great class. The wine is seductive by its smoothness but also appreciated for its great gastronomic flexibility.
This complicity continues with Franck Giovannini of the Restaurant de l’Hôtel de Ville in Crissier, and with Laurence Rochat, who continue to create their own blends, in a kind of direct link from earth to table.
Harvest on 7th September 2020
The 2020 vintage began with a very favourable spring. It was in the middle of the flowering period that cold and wet weather caused an unusual number of flowers and berries to drop off.
Then the weather was good and there was water at the right times.
As a result, the harvest started very early, on 7 September. Small grapes with a high concentration give birth to intense aromas and a mouth with a preserved vivacity.
When nature does things well, everything is easier.
Bottling was delayed to ensure careful maturation in line with the maturity of the different terroirs.
