This is a micro cuvee from an upper elevation parcel within her parcel of Chamoson. It was so pretty, delicate, and unique that Marie Therese decided to bottle it separately starting with the 2014, and has done so every year since. Of all of the Pinots that I tasted during my visit years ago, its delicacy, purity, and charm made it one of my favorites. I expect the ’21 to be particularly delicate and fresh, as ’21 was one of the coolest vintages in recent memory…..
The tasting note from the Chappaz website: “The color is a light cherry tint. Expressive nose evokes forest moss, oriental spices, red berries. Suave, delicate, silky and with an aromatic finish. With its soft style, this Pinot is to drink within 4 years.”
