Les Cretes Petite Arvine NV

Member Review by luca chevalier:

as a small adventure on the mountain, you can taste this peculiar type of grape, mostly produced in Valle d'Aosta with a significative ageing in Barriques, you can taste here the essence of the Petit Arvine, made only in steel it reveals it's nature made by Acidity en minerality, ligtht flowers and fruit...a good possibility of ageing i guess..

The vines grow in a variety of soils; this is what makes Brondel wines so original. The estate wines are regularly awarded medals in French wine competitions and mentioned in the Guide Hachette. Both our vatrooms, the first in a 19th century building and the second, which was built in 1999, are equipped for making wine using the latest vinification techniques. The Domaine des Crêtes wines are made using grapes from vines that have been certified for integrated vinegrowing since 2005, using the Terra Vitis guidelines with tracability checks carried out by an independent organisation. Through this Jean-François BRONDEL is confirming what he has always done since he started out; respected the flora, fauna and the ecosystem. His son Sylvain agrees this made of work and decides to participle at the family’s wine. Brondel winegrowers work on 11 hectares in all, of which 10 are for the red and rosé wine , so this is the gamay grape variety, and 1 hectare is for white wine and Crémant de Bourgogne, which is the chardonnay grape variety. This grape variety produces a high quality wine planted on chalky soil exposed to the east. All the wines are produced on the estate with the latest vinification techniques in a state of the art winery (thermo regulation system, modern press and conveying system). Read less
