- Item #: i_378927Bottle Size: 750mlThe Vallée d’Aoste Blanc de Morgex et de La Salle DOC is particularly attractive, since it is made from grapes harvested in the highest vineyards in Europe, at the foot of the impressive Mount Blanc.
Varities grown: Prié Blanc
The domaine was founded in the early eighties with the stated purpose of reviving abandoned vineyards along the picturesque slopes of Mont Blanc in the Valle d’Aosta. This northwestern Italian pocket features the highest-altitude vineyard sites in all of Europe; very few machines are even capable of working such extreme topographies – needless to say, they’re seldom employed within the region.

"First produced in the 2005 vintage, the wine from this local grape variety is subtly herbaceous with dominant notes of red cherry fruit; full bodied and lively, the Cornalin from Grosjean has the potential to be a serious, long-lived wine." - ROSENTHAL WINE MERCHANT
"The Grosjean family traces its roots back to the village of Fornet in the high mountain passes of the Valle d’Aosta known as Valgrisenche where they raised cattle. During the summer months, the family cultivated grapes and chestnuts on the slopes at lower altitude, stocking up on wine to supply themselves over the long winters. In 1969, Dauphin Grosjean, the father of the five sons that now collaborate to produce the wines of this estate, was encouraged to present his wine at the local “wine expo”. The exceptional quality of his work was recognized and the entire family became engaged in the expansion of the vineyards and in the production of wine.
Sustainable farming techniques have been in place since 1975: only organic fertilizers are applied and no pesticides or herbicides are used. Natural yeasts are utilized for fermentation." - Rosenthal Wine Merchant
- Item #: i_303069Bottle Size: 750mlROSENTHAL WINE MERCHANT - "Badebec Rosso Vallée d’Aoste: Composed of 90% Petit Rouge with small amounts of Fumin and Vien de Nus, the wine hints at the passito element, with rich, ripe fruit and alcohol around 14%. There are dark, sweet notes of blackberry, complemented with alpine notes that reflect the position of the vineyards. A unique wine that we are very pleased to be able to offer, if only in miniscule quantities."
