Tasting Notes

The Roh family has its origins in Alsace having crossed the mountains into the Swiss Valais during the 17th century. Their cave is located in the heart of Vétroz. This tart red wine boasts an Alpine precision, unique to Vétroz's high elevation and pristine situation. Dôle is Pinot Noir blended with a touch of Gamay, creating a substantive, juicy red wine. Vibrant acidity and gentle tannins. Share with friends over wild meats or gamey, aged cheeses.

Vines older then I am. The kind of juice that provokes imagination and thought. It makes you feel small, humbled by the rarity of its presence. Razor-like precision with a nose of dew-soaked sedimentary rocks, and smashed blue raspberrie
