Benoît Dorsaz's Quintessence is a magnificent wood-aged arvine: a shimmering nose of truffle, lime blossom honey and white chocolate. And above all, a superb rich but balanced wine, with a very noble spicy taste, a fine mouthfeel and a full body, which calls for the most refined dishes. One of the best Petite Arvine 'fût de chêne' in the Valais, by far!

Commune of Fully, terroir of the Les Perches estate: gneiss with slightly chalky moraines. This arvine comes from the heart of the family estate.


Manual harvesting in passages, qualitative sorting, search for optimal maturity. Slow alcoholic fermentation: 70% in barrels after settling and 30% in tanks after settling. Fermentation time varies from 16 to 21 days depending on the barrels. No malolactic fermentation. Aged 70% in barrels for 12 months and 30% in metal tanks on fine lees. After 12 months, these two wines are blended and kept for 6 months before bottling.

Suggestions for accompaniment

Great fish such as sole, saint pierre or sea bass will be the best companions for this gastronomic wine.

Born into a family of winegrowers, Benoît Dorsaz grew up among the vines. In 1986, he inherited a plot of chasselas. From then on, he rented the family's vineyards and undertook the replanting of the vineyard as well as the renovation and expansion of his father's cellar, with the support of his wife Maryline. Little by little, the property was enlarged in order to ensure a sustainable family business. At the estate, excellence is sought well before the quality of the wines. In this spirit, all the viticultural, oenological, commercial and administrative processes are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified. Benoît and Maryline also attach great importance to the social role of winegrowing, in particular by offering optimal working conditions. Since 2003, the couple has refused all proposals for expansion. Convinced that great wine goes hand in hand with respect and integrity, Benoît Dorsaz adopts environmentally friendly growing methods and militates for a social, sustainable and realistic viticulture. This research has led him to organic and biodynamic agriculture. In addition, to respect his soils and help nature, the winegrower favours spontaneous grassing which brings biodiversity.In the cellar, the same philosophy allows the wines to express the particularities of each vintage and of the particular terroir of Fully, where two massifs overlap. The arvine, gamay, cornalin, red...
