    Winemaker Notes

    A silky texture encloses the richness of the fruit, dense and gentle on the palate. Remarkable for its harmony, roundness and intensity, it combines grace, elegance and softness.

    Backing onto the foothills of the Alps, this superb vineyard towers majestically into the sky. The steepness of its terraces seems to defy the laws of equilibrium, ensuring generous isolation and maximum drainage. Fœhn winds and warm breezes slide between the vinestocks right up to the time when the grapes are perfectly ripe: beyond the reach of the damp air and mists of autumn, the grapes receive maximum protection from rot. The excellent condition and ripeness of the grape- allied to yield limitation are the two keys to the quality of Aigle "Les Murailles" and its reputation as the supreme wine of Vaud.

    Badoux, Other Europe
    The Pays de Vaud has put itself firmly on the world map of wine thanks to the unique qualities of its Chasselas which the soils of the region endow with a rich diversity of accents and characteristics. But in the post-war years our wines have not escaped the all-embracing process of standardization. Technical advances in oenology have raised standards, smoothing the corners, but blurring individual character. At the same time, burgeoning demand in the wine market has stimulated production.

    Though no more virtuous than the winegrowers of other regions, the people of Aigle and Yvorne are sheltered from the temptations of increasing yields by the natural barrier of the terrain and the characteristics of the local soils. We are fortunate in being able to claim that our appellations have preserved all their exclusivity and prestige. But our great concern is to continue improving the style of our fine wines. To this end we are constantly tightening the self-imposed rules under which we work. Firstly, by enhancing our knowledge of the natural factors affecting the selection and planting of the best grape varieties. Also high on our list of priorities are organic methods of cultivation, respect for the environment and product integrity. In the same spirit, we aim to master the production technology with the sole object of enhancing the authenticity and originality of our wines. The inevitable corollary of these principles is to impose an ever-stricter limitation on yields. What better token of the honesty of the soil and the taste of the grape? What better way of responding to the expectations and requirements of you the customer ? What more sublime challenge than to perfect a wine?

    Enhancing quality and diversity of wine grapes in recent years after the Swiss government lifted import controls on wine, Switzerland is beginning to gain some ground aside its European neighbors. While its main variety is the white Chasselas, more than half of Switzerland’s wine production is red. The country has 15,000 ha of vineyards mainly in the cantons of Geneva, Neuchâtel, Ticino, Valais and Vaud.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
