Amigne de Vétroz Grand Cru (Demi-Sec), Valais
Amigne is the signature grape of the village of Vétroz, the source of 90% of the world’s production of wines from this rare and very special variety. Serge Roh’s Cave Les Ruinettes owns a single hectare plot, the vines of which are 65 years old. Roh produces a seductive version, often in a demi-sec style. Far from sweet, the wine is supported by around 6.5 grams per liter of acidity, bringing balance to a bottle that has a lot to say about this compelling variety. Roh describes his Amigne as expressing notes of mandarin orange, lime blossom and spice with a silky texture and a hint of noble tannin… most definitely a wine to age.
