Pinot Gris, “Vigne Creton”, Vallée d’Aoste
From a small parcel in the Creton vineyard (meaning “hilltop” in the local dialect) at 600 meters, it is harvested manually and collected in boxes each second week of September and undergoes a long fermentation in stainless steel on the lees with repeated “batonage” for the first month after fermentation. The outcome is a wine featuring bright strawy colour which tends to golden with bottle ageing. Fruity and floral nose with apple and elderberry notes. Good structure and acidity make it suitable for long-term ageing.
The Grosjean family traces its roots back to the village of Fornet in the high mountain passes known as the Valgrisenche, where they raised cattle.Learn more
