2019 Louis Bovard Aigle "Cuvée Noe" Switzerland (Previously $45)

SKU #1667477

In the village of Aigle, Louis Bovard grows Chasselas on steep terraces with a southwestern exposure (800m) on gravelly limestone soils. Here the climate is cooler and more exposed than the more gentle sites in Lavaux, resulting in a crisper and more linear version of Chasselas. Grapes are hand-harvested, crushed, and undergo a short maceration. Fermented and aged for eight to ten months in foudre. The importer describes the property: "Domaine Louis Bovard is a ten-generation family estate located in the town of Cully on the north bank of Lac Léman. Proponents of the indigenous Chasselas, the Domaine tends a repository (Le Conservatoire Mondial du Chasselas) of the various massale selections of the variety in order to preserve the biodiversity of the Chasselas grape as well better understanding how different selections express themselves in the various terroirs of Switzerland... The steep, terraced vineyards of the Domaine are farmed sustainably with some biodynamic practices."
