Cornaline Cornaline

Cave des Champs – Claudy & Shadia Clavien Cornaline Cornaline

Also known as "Rouge du Pays", Cornalin is probably one of the oldest red grape varieties to have been planted in Valais. Like many stars, Cornalin is capricious. It requires careful care throughout the wine-growing year. It requires the best plots, located at the bottom of the best exposed slopes. It must be managed by authentic professionals. As Petite Arvine, it is surely one of the most beautiful jewels that the Valais has to offer. A wine which combines the power of Syrah and the finesse of Pinot Noir. Notes of red fruits, morello cherries and blackberries characterise it in its great years. It matches all kind of game, as well as red meats. More

    In 1970 Cornalin had almost completely disappeared. How fortunate that this indigenous grape was saved by a group of enthusiasts who most likely succumbed to its aromas of blueberry, blackberry and black cherry. A natural cross between two Italian varieties, Mayolet and Petit Rouge, this grape is a delight in the glass with its strong purple tones. Notes of pepper and cinnamon, soft tannins and an excellent velvety texture easily cloud the senses.
