Humagne rouge Vieilles Vignes, Domaine de Beudon - 2018

  • Provenance: Valais
  • Appellation: Valais
  • Domain: Beudon
  • Grape variety(ies): Humagne rouge
  • On-call time: 15 years
  • Style of wine: Vin de grand terroir
  • Alcohol degree: 13.3%
A rare production of the estate, the Red Humagne comes from an astonishing vineyard located at the bottom of the cable car, which produces very few but magnificent grapes. After aeration to dissipate the slight carbon dioxide left behind by the winemaker, it presents a magnificent nose of old rose, fine pepper and incense. The palate is stunning in its finesse and aromatic persistence. Decant for 30-45 minutes and serve at 16°.

Viticulture

The parcels of the estate are clearly separated by the steep escarpments to the south of the hamlet of Beudon. On the first hillside of Fully, at the start of the cable car installation, at the foot of the Beudon hills, there are two vineyards. The upper floor, which can only be reached by steep paths and a small private cable car, is the Domaine itself. Its south-facing vineyard, on a plateau overlooking the Rhone plain, stretches over about 6 hectares at an altitude of 740 to 890 metres. Biodynamic cultivation certified by Demeter and Bio Suisse.

Oenology

Vinification without inputs, maturing without sulphur and without wood. Bottling with very little So2, just the dose necessary for the wine to keep its shape and express its terroir.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Pheasant salad with boletus - Game - Veal quasi with chestnuts.

The property was created from scratch in the first half of the 20th century by a wealthy businessman from the valley, an original. He had a crazy plan for his retirement to create a wine estate up there, in the trees, right on the mountain.

Jacques Granges discovers this place when he leaves his engineering studies and falls madly in love with it. Listening only to his heart, he decided to settle there. It was 1971. At that time he was called crazy. He didn't care! The Granges are passionate about nature above all. They are botanical enthusiasts, close to life, to the fauna and flora of the Valais, lovers of the land, who campaign for preserved diversity. The plots of land that make up the agricultural estate are located on three different levels: 1. on the plain, where they grow apples, pears, medicinal and aromatic herbs and vegetables, on three plots of land at the place known as "Grand-Blettay"; 2. on the first hillside of Fully, at the start of the cable car installation (which takes them home), at the foot of the Beudon hills, with two vineyards; 3. and finally, on the upper level, the...
