Cornalin

Caves Du Paradis Cornalin

A true treasure of Valaisan heritage, Cornalin can pride itself on being one of the oldest grape varieties planted in the canton - under the name Rouge du Pays. Despite arousing the enthusiasm of connoisseurs, it remains little-known because of its rarity. Miser of its fruit, it demands the best places in the sun.

Grape

  • Cornalin

    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.
