Discover the incredible richness of Valais terroir with this cuvée by Maurice Gay! The wine has been aged for 20 months in oak barrels which gives it its exquisite vanilla and caramel notes.
Grand Prix du Vin Suisse - Silver medal, August 2017
Fillet of Hérens beef with morel sauce, venison medallions cooked in génépi liqueur, rack of deer with chestnuts, chamois stew in Cornalin sauce, roasted veal with “crève-à-fous” (potato and beet gratin), or enjoy it on its own as a wonderful “meditation wine.”
Deep dark red with ruby reflections.
Subtle and, at the same time, intense. With fruity, spicy, smoky notes, and the typical Cornalin aroma of black cherry, accompanied by a Merlot’s peppery accents. The delicate chocolate, vanilla and caramel notes stem from barrel aging.
This full-bodied, balanced, and rounded Cru delights the palate with silky tannins and a wonderful concentration before tapering off in an incredibly long finish.
The wine comes from the vines of four parcels. The Merlot grows in the municipalities of Conthey and Chamoson. The Cornalin thrives in the municipalities of Sierre and Fully. After several years of rigorous pruning and targeted vineyard work, the first harvest for this wine was ready and delivered the desired low yields. The result is a wonderful wine, pure and concentrated, which completely satisfies the enologists at Maurice Gay.
After an initial warm maceration followed by a traditional winemaking method, the wine was aged for at least 20 months in 228-liter Burgundy barrels made of French oak.
