Mont-sur-Rolle Appellation d’origine contrôlée La Côte

For some 20 years we have been fortunate to work closely with this brilliant Crissier star chef.

Even after handing over his restaurant,t Frédy Girardet has continued to select, from our cellar, wines that have given birth each year to a blend marked by his style and that carries his name.

We create these wines every spring, building them around the characteristics of the vintage, marrying grape varieties that allow us to mature wines that are dry, fresh and robust: wines that will enhance the most refined dishes.

VINTAGE

Harvest on 10th September

The budding date predicted a normal year, with harvest in October, as usual in our region. But the time until the flowering has rarely been so short: only 49 days against 62.5 days on average thanks to hot and sunny weather!

So we started picking on September 10, with grapes of absolutely irreproachable quality and temperatures still frying 30 degrees. It was one of the nicest and longest summers ever recorded.

The fermentations went well. The last sugars turned into alcohol. Crucial stage, revealing the subtleties of the grape. Out of respect for work in the vineyard, we vinify in the same state of mind. In particular, by the use of native yeasts or the absence of sulfur, which makes us live adventures sometimes surprising … The tasting is daily. We monitor the wines with curiosity and interest, which allows us to gently guide each tank through temperature controls or transvases.

We are looking forward to seeing you again at our cellar to taste this 2018 vintage, which offers wines with body and very nice concentrations of aromas.

Le commentaire de Frédy Girardet
«Avec une crème d’asperges vertes aux morilles, un risotto aux cèpes, ou un consommé de grenouille en gelée à la fine mousseline de pois.»

Millésime 2004 
dégustation par Martin Kilchmann
«Diese vom grossen Chef Frédy Girardet ausgewählte Cuvée enthält neben Chasselas etwas Pinot gris und Chardonnay. Der Wein gewinnt dadurch die Kraft une Struktur, die er vielleicht an Eleganz verliert. Girardet empfiehlt dazu eine Crème von grünen Spargeln mit Morcheln oder ein Steinpilzrisotto.»
