This is a vigorous, late-ripening grape whose full potential is realized when it has the best exposures, grown in dry soil that is not very rich, and the harvest is well managed. In some years the grapes can be harvested late.

The sweet wine that results is a blend of richness, opulence, voluptuousness and subtle aromas of truffle, honey, raspberry brandy. This is a wine that is always worth aging, whether it’s a sweet or dry one, in order to let it fully develop its harmony.


Notes of strawberry and wild raspberry
Opulent, rich and generous wines. Vinosity reminiscent of raspberry eau-de- vie with a slight bitterness in the finish.
Marsanne arrived in Valais in the 19th century. It has its roots in the Côtes-du- Rhône region in France, in particular the area of Tain L’Hermitage, which is where the name Ermitage, used in Valais, comes from.
