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. They grow in south-facing vineyards in the municipality of Verrayes at 650 m elevation.

Cold pre-fermentation maceration and fermentation at 22°C for 10/12 days in steel. Aging in large wooden barrels for 12/15 months and subsequent aging in the bottle for 18

This is a silky and delicate wine with a Medium, elegant body. Vuillermin 2016 is a very important and rare wine, which is ready to drink and enjoy now.
A sour-cherry aroma mingles with smoky touches of dried fig, porcini, with ripe black-cherry fruit emerging on the mid-palate. It finishes with just enough tannin to frame the palate. This wine is the perfect wine for your next pork dish.

5 of 5 Very interesting and silky red wine August 19, 2021
Reviewer: Mike Rosso from Austin, TX United States  
Great aroma of red fruit and spice
On the palate, it presents itself as a wine with good structure, velvety, with typical notes of spices and wood. Long finish.
