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.
La Dame Noire is an original red wine created in the barrel cellar of the Domaine des Balisiers. The aging in oak barrels had been almost abandoned in the Swiss vineyards during the Second World War, due to the lack of imported oak. The Swiss coopers had almost all disappeared. In 1985, Domaine des Balisiers was one of the first to rehabilitate this old oenological practice in Switzerland by creating the Black Lady. The composition of the Black Lady varies according to the qualities of the vintage. The Black Lady is an assemblage of Gamay, Pinot Noir and Gamaret. The color is superb, dark red and deep. The fruit and spices take equal place in the perfumes of this delicate nose. On the palate a lot of consistency without heaviness with crème de cassis and empyreumatic notes. The middle is concentrated with a beautiful material where the round fruits and the woody mix until the final. This wine is aged one year in oak barrels, which gives it a woody note and vanilla aromas. The Black Lady is tasted five to ten years in a good cellar. It is a meal wine that goes particularly well with red meats, grilled meats and hunting.
