    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.”
