Chardonnay en amphore, Claudy Clavien - 2022

Although planted all over the world, the Valais is well suited to Chardonnay, as long as it is cut at the right moment of ripeness. Since 2020, the estate's Chardonnay has been cradled in concrete amphorae. This material allows fine oxygenation, giving it greater finesse and a pure expression of the terroir. Its exotic aromas, underpinned by excellent acidity, are a perfect match for lake and sea food.

After graduating in viticulture and oenology from the Changins school, he created La Cave des Champs in 1986 and spent a lot of time determining the suitability of each of the grape varieties for its terroir. Without compromise, he also works on the balance of the plant, in order to obtain the lowest yields, with a view to optimising the concentration of the berry; this results in the right maturity of the fruit, favouring both the structure of the wine and the freshness of the fruit. In the last few vintages, the decision was even taken to go organic, under the impetus of his daughter Shadia, who had recently arrived.
