First documented under the name Vuillermin in 1890, the grape was virtually extinct until it was discovered by ampelographers at the Institut Agricole Regional of Aosta growing in isolated vineyards in communes of Chatillon and Pontey. In 2011, DNA analysis showed that Vuillermin was the offspring of Fumin. Vuillermin is a promising indigenous variety, mostly used in blends, that was once much more widely planted throughout the Central Valley; Michel Vallet is currently the only producer making a 100% varietal version.

This is a silky and delicate wine with a light, elegant body produced from the very rare Vuillerman grapes from Val D Aosta. Feudo Di San Maurizio only makes 1000 bottles. His compelling 2010 displays a lovely, almost transparent dark brick-red color with auburn highlights. A sour-cherry aroma mingles with smoky touches of dried fig, porcini, and soy sauce. Full and weighty in the mouth, the wine has a firm, acidic grip, with ripe black-cherry fruit emerging on the mid-palate. It finishes slightly of tart cherries, with just enough tannin to frame the palate. This is the perfect wine for your next pork dish.
