Henri’s passion for Cornalin has been an uphill climb. A difficult, stern and unpleasant cultivar that has been hard to love. But like in all romantic stories, time has softened one and the other, and for Henri’s thirtieth, Vioux has sealed this new union. The wine represents the perfect biography of the grape’s oenological characteristics: reserved and fruity when first poured, becoming full and deep at the end of the tasting. A great wine produced by a vigneron that has been conquered by Cornalin over time.

Tortelli with pheasant and scorzone truffle
Full ruby red. The nose reveals an assortment of small berries: raspberries with ripe strawberry and blackberry. The aroma also hints to geranium and fresh rose with pleasant spicy touches of cloves and nutmeg. The palate is a balance of acidity and salinity, supported by a remarkable body and alcohol content. A curious and gastronomic bitter finish completes the picture, with aromatic hints of raspberry.
