    Rose de Lune

    Rose de Lune is a varietal rosé made from Pinot Noir. Its particularly tender fruitiness owes much to the fact that it is vinified from juice drawn off after the grapes have spent only a few hours in the tank. Its rosy salmon surface is transluscent, with hues of orange. The nose is an aromatic explosion of apricot, pineapple, lichee and peach. Rose de Lune is a wine for summertime meals and a delightful companion for Asian cuisine. It should ideally be chilled to 9-11° in an ice bucket before serving.

    Equinoxe Rosé

    AOP Les Baux de Provence Tasting notes: Wine with a crystalline robe. The nose is expressive and complex, with notes of raspberry and grapefruit. After aeration, the notes of citrus fruits are confirmed and reveal new aromas such as fig and white flowers. The attack in the mouth is fresh, lively and ample. All in balance, this wine is silky. It reveals a nice length on the palate, and a rather long finish, making you want to enjoy an extra sip. Wine pairing: Fresh and fruty, the good match it’s with some « petits farcis à la provençale » or with a bream at the olive oil and seasonal vegetables. Serve at 14 degrees. Production: 30hl/ha. Wine-making process: Our vines are pruned short in « gobelet » on a clay and calcaerous soil, the harvest is during the nigth, then destem and press to make a bleeding rosé. We are doing a cold settling. Fermentation with natural yeast and maturated in stainless steal tank. Yield : 20 hL/ ha Blend: 95% Grenache Noir, 2% Mourvèdre, 2% Cinsault, 1% Counoise. Alcohol by volume:  13,5%

    Pinot Noir

    Pinot Noir is the variety used to make all of Burgundy’s great red wines. Along with Cabernet and Syrah, it is considered to be one of the best three red varieties in the world. It is an extremely fine and racy varietal which can titer up to 13 per cent alcohol. It is best served at cellar temperature, between 16° and 18°. Its red colour is nuanced with violet. It can keep for four to ten years depending on the vintage. It makes a harmonious match for white meat, poultry and some white sea-fish (e.g. dorade or Mediterranean seabass). Its subtle flavour is typically reminiscent of forest berries and wild cherry.

    Dame Noire

    Dame Noire is an original red blend developed in our winery at the Domaine des Balisiers. Virtually all Swiss winemakers stopped maturing their wines in vats during the Second World War because oak could no longer be imported and coopers simply went out of business for want of raw material. In 1985, the Domaine des Balisiers was one of the first wine-making estates to resurrect this traditional method of vinification when it started to produce Dame Noire. The actual proportions of the blend vary with the characteristics of each vintage, but the varieties are consistently Gamay, Pinot Noir and Gamaret. Its deep, dark-red colour is simply superb. Its delicate nose is a perfect balance of fruitiness and spicy lift. On tasting, it is generously full-bodied but entirely without heaviness, combining a soft flavour of black-current with empyreumatic notes. The middle is a full-bodied concentration of rounded fruitiness gently blending with subtle oakiness all the way to the finale. Matured for a full year in oak vats, our Dame Noire is indeed a wine for keeping that develops a oaky note with vanilla-like aromas. It should ideally be allowed five to ten years in a good wine cellar before drinking. It is a mealtime wine that goes particularly well with red meat, BBQs and venison.

    Lune Rousse

    Gamaret is an original Swiss grape variety, a hybrid that was first bred towards the end of the 20th century by Switzerland’s Federal plant breeding/viticultural centre at Changins. It was initially used only in blends with Pinot Noir and Gamay. Over the past decade or so, however, it has gained ground across the Geneva vineyards in its own right. Our Lune Rousse is 100% Gamaret. It is the produce of some six acres planted with this variety near the Geneva suburb of Plan-les-Ouates. It is matured in our winery’s clay amphora for 15 months. Its characteristically dark red colour plays a prelude to its strong tannic expressiveness and low acidity. Lune Rousse makes a marvellous companion for various meat and spicy dishes (tartare, curries, Thai cuisine, venison stew). One taster, Oenologist Raul Cruchon in Echichens, described it as “The most wonderful Gamaret I have ever tasted!” Another, Sommelier Raymond Paccot of Féchy, exclaimed: “What a body! Such intensity and promise!” A third, the wine reviewer for the French daily Le Monde, commented: “This is an unusual wine … still imbued with the subtlety of its primeval substance, tannins just begging to turn smooth, a dry essence with incredibly potent aromatic potential … Amazingly successful, a great wine for ageing.”

    Sine Nomine

    VIN DE FRANCE Tasting notes: A deep ruby red colour. This wine should firstly be decanted to enhance the complexity of the initially discreet nose. Be seduced by its combination of coffee, Sichuan pepper, clove, liquorice and plum notes with just a hint of mint. The hearty, delightfully acid attack is followed by a beautiful concentration on the palate. The tannins are noticeable but not dominant. A long and lingering finish with hints of black cherry, spice and violet. This powerful and elegant wine can enticingly accompany rabbit with thyme or braised veal breast. Serve at 17 degrees. Production: 20hl/ha. Wine-making process: Hand harvested. Indigenous yeast fermentation. Maturing in ovoid amphoras. Blend: 80% Petit Verdot, 20 % Grenache Noir. Alcohol by volume: 13%
