LES CRÊTES VALLE D’AOSTA TORRETTE SUPERIORE 2016 : Love the aromas of blue fruit and slate that follow through to the medium body, integrated tannins and a tar and mineral aftertaste. Some black tea. Drink now.

LES CRĘTES CHARDONNAY VALLE D’AOSTA CUVEE BOIS 2016 : It doesn’t have to be Chablis, as this sophisticated and elegant Chardonnay from the far northwest of Italy proves. Great balance of candied lemons and toasty oak on the medium-bodied palate with a long and elegant finish. Drink or hold.

LES CRÊTES VALLE D’AOSTA FUMIN 2016: This is a fresh and clean red with raspberry and lemon character. Medium body, light tannins and lovely freshness. Taste the mountains. Drink or hold.
LES CRÊTES PETIT ARVINE VALLE D’AOSTA FLEUR VIGNA DEVIN ROS 2017: There’s stunning mountain freshness in this rare Italian petit arvine (the grape is native to the Swiss section of the Rhône Valley). Concentrated and tightly wound palate with a long finish, featuring the salty mineral note that’s typical for this grape. Drink or hold.
LES CRÊTES PINOT NERO VALLE D’AOSTA 2017: A fresh and minerally pinot noir with violets, lavender and citrus aromas and flavors. Medium body, fine tannins and a clean and delicious finish. Drink now.
