Alain Rolaz talk about his wine
This is a selection of quality wines aged in barrel, and epitomises my love of wine. However, these are more than just barrel-aged wines. Their quality starts out in the vineyard. Crescendo wines are made from plots with over 8,000 vines per hectare, compared to the traditional density of 6,800. The yield is approximately 4-500 grams per square metre, i.e. about half of normal production.
High density due to the very low yields per vine results in concentrated wines. Special efforts are made with this wine. Green harvesting takes place twice or even three times during the growing season. It’s no accident that the aromas are so concentrated, that the wine shows such magnificent intensity, and that it has such great ageing potential.
“Crescendo” a selection of barrel aged wines
The development of the Crescendo range is the fruit of my passion. It is all about respecting traditional ways, know how, lots of attention and the perfection I’m after. If any of these wines is not matching our quality standards, it will not be put on the market.
Each wine variety is aged in barrels for a year, followed by a 6 month’s ageing in wine vats for optimal harmonization. This period of ripening allows us time enough to blend several varieties that will be bottled in June. Ready for you to be tasted 2 years later.
