This cuvée is a collaboration between Chandra Kurt and oenologist Madeleine Gay made from Humagne Blanche planted on limestone soils near Leytron and Saillon. Humagne Blanche is one of the oldest documented varieties in Switzerland and long considered to be indigenous until recent DNA testing showed it to be identical to the obscure provençcale Miousat. The latest theory is that this was a variety brought to Marseilles when the Greeks colonized the region in 600 BCE. Somehow it made its way up the Rhône River, where only 30 hectares survive in the Valais. Humagne Blanche is one of Chandra’s favorite white varieties from the Valais with its delicate lime blossom aroma, fresh acidity, and a resiny quality that emerges with age.
