Syrah Encre de la Terre, Claudy Clavien - 2020

This Syrah has become one of the benchmarks of the Valais in recent years. With the 2019 vintage, the sympathetic producer from Miegeois, helped by his daughter Shadia, continues his qualitative ascent. The nose is intense, complex, with black fruits and oriental spices, and the body is admirable, dense, precise, with a real dimension of depth and finesse. It will age wonderfully!

It is one of the most beautiful hillsides in the central Valais and it was in this village that he developed a taste for the vine. His parents, owners of 2 hectares, gave him the love of the land, and later the love of wine. 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.
