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 Brigitte Violier 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 12th September
The vine woke up particularly early in 2017, so the first leaves were very sensitive to spring frost and many wine regions were affected. Thank you lake, we escaped this disaster.
The rest of the wine year has given new life to the winemakers. Little rain, so little humidity and pressure of fungal diseases, without however that the vine lacks water and is stressed.
The picking was early, from September 12th. The maturity of the berries was therefore made on long days, unlike last year when we started almost a month later! Photosynthesis is more important, therefore, the sugar level is higher. In itself, a reasonable harvest, a beautiful maturity, and freshness.
