Located in the spectacular Swiss Grand Cru village of Vetroz in the Valais, Cave du Vieux-Moulin has been family owned and operated for three generations. Romain Papilloud, who took the reins in 1986, is committed to low intervention winemaking. His miniscule holdings, primarily in Vetroz and supplemented with small plots in Conthey and Ardon, amount to a mere four hectares of vines. The steep slope requires intense labor to tend, which he does by hand with the help of his wife and son. This Fendent (Chasselas) is considered one of Switzerland's top wines. Named for the almond trees that were once planted here, the "Amandoleyre" benefits from the steep slope and alpine climate. Its prime location and Romain's exceptional care result in a wine with elegant structure and a rocky minerality, truly worthy of its Grand Cru title.
