Although the exact origin of Humagne Rouge is unknown, it has been found in the Aosta valley and in Valais for about a century. There is no genetic connection between the Humagne Rouge and the Humagne Blanc varieties. Due to its late ripening, this grape requires the best locations of the Valais hillsides. Thus the terroir of Ardévaz in Leytron is well suited and enables it to develop to its full capacity.
Tasting notes Intense red colour with a brown hue. The nose consists of spicy notes reminding of bay leaf skilfully mixed with fragrances of tobacco and tea. A clear and vivid attack and perfectly integrated tannins give this wine a solid structure. A perfect red wine for keeping.
Food-wine pairing Perfect with game or tasty meat such as grilled beef and lamb. Accompanies strong tasting cheeses marvellously.
