Winegrowers have no choice but to work in harmony with nature. In 2017, it devastated and then rewarded the Clos de Balavaud.
A personality, a bouquet of aromas, a subtle flavour that each year metamorphoses: Clos de Balavaud is a mythical place in Valais.
Thanks to its ideal geographical location and the complexity of its soils, the vineyard is an undeniable grand cru.
Only nature reigns over him. "Whether she is merciful or capricious, we work in harmony with her," says Alexandre Gillioz. A land ploughed by millennia, a providential land.
In 2017, 75% of the vines froze. "It hurt my stomach. But you have to know how to recover from the vagaries of nature". The team vinified the few grapes that were saved and the stock quickly ran out. "Fortunately, the harvest was magnificent the following year." The Fendant Clos de Balavaud 2018 was elected best Valaisan wine at the Mondial du Chasselas and 3rd in the world.
