Backing onto the foothills of the Alps, this superb vineyard towers majestically into the sky. The steepness of its terraces seems to defy the laws of equilibrium, ensuring generous isolation and maximum drainage. Fœhn winds and warm breezes slide between the vinestocks right up to the time when the grapes are perfectly ripe. Beyond the reach of the damp air and mists of autumn, the grapes receive maximum protection from rot. The excellent condition and ripeness of the grape allied to yield limitation are the two keys to the quality of Aigle ‘Les Murailles’ and its reputation as the supreme wine of Vaud.
A silky texture encloses the richness of the fruit, dense and gentle on the palate. Remarkable for its harmony, roundness and intensity, it combines grace, elegance and softness.
