Lucas Mader's Picks

We brought this wine in for our Rare & Fine show this past winter and it was a hit! Grosjean has been producing organic wine in the Italian Alps for nearly 5 decades, specializing in Indigenous varieties such as Fumin, Cornalin, Premetta, and Petite Arvine, as well as the not-so-local, Gamay. This wine is made from the Swiss varietal: Petite Arvine. Utilizing natural yeasts, 30% of the wine was left to ferment and mature in a mix of old and new French oak. The other 70% left in stainless. There is great freshness and vibrancy balanced nicely with a round texture. Expect a floral mix of stone fruits, honey, and a mineral finish with lasting concentration. A wine that punches above its price point!
