Description Technical Specs (May be in Italian If There Is Not an English Version Available)
Michel Vallet works in the small Alpine town of Sarre in the Valle d’Aosta region. The population of 4,878 people enjoy the sunniest part of this Alpine valley, as it climbs toward Mont Blanc. The icy air and warm sun give perfect tans to vintage skiers and a bevy of rare native grapes (Fumin, Petit Arvine, Mayolet, and –even rarer — Cornalin and Vuillermin). Michel started in 1998 to recover three ancient stone terraced vineyards that were abandoned during Italy’s ‘boom economico’ of the 1960s. He is slowly expanding the terraced areas to accommodate more vineyards. The wines are not traditional in the rustic sense, nor are they modern in the highly-polished sense. What they do have is an exceptionally precise and tightly composed architecture of fruits, minerals, and bitter components that neither leap out of the glass nor remain stubbornly shy. Hand harvested, native yeast, minimal to no intervention in the cellar.

This wine has become a favorite among our customers at Enoteca Vino Nostro. This wine brings tastes reminiscent of Bordeaux flavors with elegant dark berries and cherries. Its color is a distinctive deep ruby-red, almost garnet, and displays aromas of jam, tobacco and even vanilla where the wines have been barrel aged. Cherry and blueberry flavors can be detected on the palate, as well as some sweet spice. The wines tend to be rather delicate, with a hint of tartness on the finish. The Mayolet is great with a wide range of meats and poultry, pastas with meat sauces, and strong and mature cheeses.

5 of 5 Phenomenal wine! May 8, 2018
Reviewer: Sofia Herrera from San Francisco, CA United States  
I had this wine with my girlfriends, and we paired it with aged cheese. It was my first time trying Mayolet, and even my first time trying a wine from Valle d' Aosta, but it was absolutely amazing! Really elegant wine, more similar to the French wine than to the other wines from Italy.  I definitely want to try the other wines from the Feudo di San Maurizio!! Thank you Paris for the good recommendation!
