In the vine
The terroir of the Crausaz estate covers 3.5ha near the village of Grandvaux. Located in the heart of Lavaux and enjoying a dominant position, our Estate, a magnificent stately building from the 16th century, offers breathtaking views of Lake Geneva. A deep clay soil borders another composed of sands and pebbles from the glacial moraines. On the ridges, the soils are shallow. The molasse exposed by the glacier can thus give its full character to the wine.
During the harvest
Like the previous vintage, the year 2018 was characterized by a year of significant drought where we find musts with vertiginous Oechslé degrees briskly exceeding 85 ° for Chasselas and 120 ° depending on the white or red specialties combined. The year 2018 produced high quality, rich and aromatic wines with great power. These are wines that should behave very well over time.
In the cellar
Produced in a limited edition exclusively for our estate, this wine undergoes two types of fermentation, alcoholic and malolactic. It is the result of a blend of Chasselas and Chardonnay to give crunch and fruit to this magnificent product. Bottled between April and May, bottling takes place in a single bottling run of 1,500 bottles.
