Humagne rouge, Cave des Amandiers - A. Deletraz (magnum) - 2021

Inspired by the great French Rhone wines, in recent vintages all the reds of the giant Alexandre Delétraz are vinified with a maximum of whole grapes. On this humagne, we are at 70%, which exacerbates the natural finesse of the grape variety. Very pretty, lively and well-designed on the palate, with characteristic mentholated notes and a peppery finish. A great long distance runner.

Comes from two locations in the commune of Fully: Les Tatzes (Follatères) and Tassonière. The vines are selections massales valdotaines and valaisannes. The granite vineyards of Fully help to obtain freshness with longer ripening in the autumn than in the central Valais. The altitude can also play a role, in this case, they are still located between 500 and 600 m.


Vinification with 30% whole grapes. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Aged in barrels.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Guinea fowl with lemon - Veal shank confit - Braised lamb mice, fennel gratin.

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...
