Cave des Tilleuls Humagne Rouge Grand Reserve 2009

92 Our Score
(3/2017) The wines of Fabienne Cottagnoud (and her husband Marc-Henri, who manages the vineyards) showcase the indigenous varietals and unique terroir of the Valais AOC in the Swiss Alps. Fabienne's low-interventionist approach allows the mineral concentrated soil of their property in Vetroz to express itself through each bottle. Humagne Rouge is a slow-to-ripen varietal that has a tendency to show savory elements such as mushroom, dried herbs, and smoked meat- not unlike a Northern Rhone Syrah with some age. Fabienne achieves perfect balance with refined yet firm tannins, medium-weight, and pure elegance while maintaining the rustic sensibility of the region. If you have never before tried Swiss wine, this is a perfect opportunity to taste a traditional expression of the Valais.
