Description

Cornalin

To the eye, its colour is purplish red. The nose of Cornalin expresses aromas of black cherry and wild berries. Featuring a beautiful long finish, it has a powerful palate with harmonious tannins.

History

Called “Rouge du Pays” in the early fourteenth century, the Cornalin is a capricious and difficult grape to grow. Almost abandoned in the middle of the twentieth century, it is now considered by some as the greatest red wine of Valais.

Vinification

This wine has been traditionally vinified in our tanks, and it thus retains all of its flavour and original aromas.

Gastronomy

Because of its strength, Cornalin is perfect with game and tasty or marinated meat. It is also popular with cheeses.
