Deliciously scented with citrus aromas, Païen gives off a nice freshness. Its long and structured palate combines a tonic effect with liveliness. It can be appreciated very young or after a few years of ageing.
Whether called Païen as in the French-speaking Valais or Heida as in the Upper Valais, this wine made from Savagnin Blanc was mentioned in the mid-sixteenth century, however, its name traces back to before the evangelisation. Initially cultivated on the slopes of Visperterminen among the highest vineyards in Europe, it grows in all of the French-speaking Valais.
This wine has been traditionally vinified in our tanks, and it thus retains all of its flavour and fruity aromas.
Païen is perfect with cheese, shellfish, seafood and fish in sauce.
