Grape variety:
100% Petite Arvine

Inherited the lands by his wife, in 1968 Grandpa Dauphin started bottling his own wine for the “II Exposition des Vins du Val d’Aoste”: the success of that fair encouraged the Grosjean grandfather’s drive that brought the farm from 3000 sq.m to the current 12 hectares. In the following years, all five sons committed themselves to the work: Vincent, Giorgio, Marco, Fernand and Eraldo, everyone expert in his own department. A new winery was built in 2000 in order to hold the increasing harvests. In 2011 a breakthrough happened: by mutual agreement the organic conversion started, the first winery in Valle d’Aosta. In 2015 a further renewal allowed to increase the winery in order to host all the 120,000 bottles produced.

Winemaking

Guyot bush forming system. Cultivation operations partly mechanical and partly manual, with techniques allowed only in organic farming. The fertilizations are carried out with the addition of organic substances (mature bovine manure).

The Petite Arvine grape present in this bottle comes from the selection of particularly fresh vines, with an exposure that favors fresh and mineral scents. In the selection of Petite Arvine from the classic line, all the freshness and enchanting aromas typical of this Aosta Valley variety are expressed. 100% vinified in steel tanks, it is bottled after 6 months of aging.

White vinification, with the use of pied de cuve selected in our vineyards. Refinement 70%: 8 months in steel “sur lie”, 30%: 8 months in French oak “sur lie”. In both cases, two batonnages per week are carried out in the months of November and December, 3 months in the bottle.

Tasting notes
