  • The Vineyard

    • The Clos du Crosex Grillé is a 2.5-hectare plot in the commune of Aigle. Nestled in the foothills of the Vaud Alps, it has a complete west/southwest exposure, and sits on steep slopes of up to 35-40% which allows good natural drainage.

    • Cultivation

      minimal chemical intervention.

  • The Winery

    • The grapes are picked by hand at peak maturity and carefully sorted in the vineyard. After destemming and pressing (pneumatic press), the must is allowed to settle and, only if necessary, receive a light chaptalisation. Fermentation begins spontaneously on the lees (100% malolactic fermentation takes place) for two to six weeks (19-22°C). The wine is aged 50% in concrete 'eggs' (amphora) and the balance in stainless steel tanks for 6 to 8 months.

    • Production

      14,000 bottles on average

    • Format

      Bottles (75cl), halves, (37.5cl) and magnums (140cl pot vaudois)
      For larger sizes please contact the Domaine at the beginning of the year.

  • Tasting

    • Colour

      Pale yellow with glints of green, very slightly sparkling (natural CO2)

    • Aromatics

      Initially restrained on the nose, then opens up with floral notes of honeysuckle, lime and white blossom, with smoky aromas and a warm minerality.

    • Palate

      Full, round and generous with a good weight lightened by a touch of natural CO2. Pronounced minerality at the finish. Floral notes and melted butter develop over time in the bottle.

  • Serving

    • Optimum serving temperature

      10°C

    • Areation

      Ideally served in tulip glasses

    • Ageing potential

      10 years+

    • Food and wine pairing

      A perfect aperitif wine which also goes beautifully with starters of raw vegetables and freshwater fish. As the wine matures it is also delicious with salty, alpine and goat cheese.
