Grosjean Frères, Vallee d'Aoste


Pinot Noir

2019   |   2,130 ft.

A very light drinking Pinot, brimming with fruit compote, spruce stems, and rose petals. Its lithe nature and fragrance plays nicely with a gentle minerality. 

The Wine

While this wine is 100% Pinot Noir, 70% are from French lineage and 30% are of the rare Wadenzwil strain.

 

Vinification in wood casks with daily punching down for three days, followed by 10-12 days of settling before aging partly in steel, part in oak. Biodynamic Certified.

Sustainable farming techniques have been in place since 1975: only organic fertilizers are applied and no pesticides or herbicides are used. Natural yeasts are utilized for fermentation.

Location

The estate has now grown to encompass seven hectares of vineyards. The domaine in Italy is located in the hamlet of Ollignan on the border of the towns of Quart and Saint Christophe and includes “cru” vineyard sites such as Tzeriat, Rovettaz, Creton and Touren in Quart, plus Tzantè de Bagnere, Merletta and Castello di Pleod in Saint Christophe.

The vineyards are at a high altitude (600-750m) with a steep incline, allowing for the distinct alpine characteristics to show through.

The Maker

The Grosjean family traces its roots back to the village of Fornet in the high mountain passes of the Valle d’Aosta known as Valgrisenche where they raised cattle. 

 

In 1969, Dauphin Grosjean, the father of the five sons that now collaborate to produce the wines of this estate, was encouraged to present his wine at the local “wine expo”. The exceptional quality of his work was recognized and the entire family became engaged in the expansion of the vineyards and in the production of wine.
