The latest of the Balisiers, Mélopée is a Chenin late harvests harvested late November early December, to concentrate sugars and aromatic complexity. Light amber color, powerful nose with candied fruit aromas, date, pineapple, ripe peach. Mouth with a soft attack, compact mid-palate and a syrupy finish. Very rich wine to accompany a sorbet fruit of passion. Attention: Absolute nectar that triggers the passions! Bottled in very small quantity (500 bottles per year.)
Gamay is the vine of Touraine, part of the Loire and especially Beaujolais. The Geneva terroir makes it possible to raise particularly fruity Gamays. In some favorable names like Peney and Peissy, it is possible to raise Gamays of good conservation, ie to be tasted for five years and more. Like all the red wines of the Domaine des Balisiers, the Gamay is put on sale only after a year of cellaring. Gamay is the main red wine grown in AOC Geneva. It is a wine of meal which accompanies the charcuterie, some white meat and poultry. It can be served quite fresh, rather than being chambered. Ruby in color, this fruity wine often has hints of raspberries and blackberries.
Pinot Noir is the red grape used to make all the great red Burgundies. It is an extremely fine and distinguished wine that in the best vintages can titrate up to 13 °. This wine must be served at cellar temperature, between 16 ° and 18 °. Red in color with mauve shades, it can be kept for four to ten years depending on the vintage. Pinot Noir is a great accompaniment to white meats, poultry and some white sea fish (bream, wolf, etc.). Its subtle taste often reminds of the berries of the forest, cherries too. Pinot Noir is considered one of the three most noble red grape varieties with Cabernet and Syrah.
