Gamay d'Euloz, Cave des Amandiers - A. Deletraz - 2020

Attention, a little masterpiece! Produced on a terroir blessed by the gods for the grape variety and vinified in the Beaujolais style, in whole bunches (which is unusual in Valais), this wine sets new standards for Gamay in the region. From the glass comes a profusion of aromas of flowers, pepper and noble spices, with hints of citrus and ripe fruit. On the palate, its density is matched only by its finesse; and the finish, still reserved, announces a great potential for aging. A real favourite.

Viticulture

Located in the village of Fully, at an altitude of 732 metres, the vines are on average 40 years old and grow on a 35-acre parcel of gneiss bedrock, covered with a light soil of sand and very gravelly silt with little limestone (> 6.7%). The vineyard benefits from a continental climate with Mediterranean tendencies and optimal sunshine, particularly during the vegetative period. The Foehn effect favours a healthy state of the grapes at harvest time. The estate has greatly reduced the yields in recent years for this cuvée: 30 hl/ha maximum.

Oenology

The must is vinified 100% in whole bunches, 1 month in vats and then spent in used demi-muids for 11 months.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Rack of pork marinated with herbs and cooked at low temperature - Saddle of hare with pepper.

Domain
Alexandre Delétraz is the story of an idealist from Geneva who moved to the Valais. In his own words: "La Cave des Amandiers is a bit of a utopia or rather a dream... A life project! It is the desire to create great wines in exceptional terroirs while respecting nature, to reveal the qualities of the Valaisan grape varieties in an authentic environment and to offer the wine the time to grow in the coolness of the cellar. The cellar is one of the youngest in the Valais, since it was created in 2008. After having vinified the first vintage in a mazot, then in a tractor garage in Fully, Alexandre found a more suitable place in the commune of Saillon. He moved into this new cellar in 2011 and although the vinification facilities are recent, the work remains totally artisanal. The vines are tended by hand because of the uneven topography, made up of small terraces that stretch from 450 to 900 metres above sea level over 5.2 hectares. This is an opportunity to remind ourselves that vine growing in the Valais is sometimes also mountain viticulture. This heroic viticulture is perfectly illustrated by the different entities that Alexandre owns in Fully: Les Seyes, Les Follatères, La Combe d'Enfer, Chanton d'Euloz, La Combe des Cloux. And so many vertiginous slopes, where the vines sometimes cling painfully to the hillside, with numerous small terraces supported by dry stone walls. This...
