Winemaking Notes: Harvest is done entirely manual, usually in mid-September. After total destemming and a 1-2 day cold soak, the wine ferments spontaneously in stainless steel tanks. The wine remains on its fine lees for 8 months until assemblage prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes: Gamay from the valley's steep, south-facing upper slopes is an excellent partner to traditional charcuterie, including salami, motzetta, and thinly sliced lard, along with traditional Aosta Valley soups. Grosjean's example is always balanced, fruit-forward, lightly tannic, and fresh.
