Massy Vins: Epesses Clos du Boux Grand CruGrape: ChasselasVillage: EpessesAOC: LavauxVintage: 2019
The Massy dynasty has been resident in the village of Epesses for more than a century and has forged a reputation as the great winemakers of Lavaux. The brothers Gregory and Benjamin, currently at the helm, represent a new generation of Swiss winemakers, who honor the viticulture heritage while using modern technology to their best. The two are among the most "connected" winemakers in Switzerland and in daily active exchange with a large community of wine-lovers on social media.
Clos du Boux is their wine of elegance and aromatic finesse. The perfect location of the vineyard in Epesses and outstanding great know-how allow them to offer a Chasselas of great scope, respecting the traits of the grape variety and sublimating its terroir.
For all who like Chasselas from the Lavaux: Attention! Here we are talking about haute couture! The subtlety of the Chasselas grape is underlined by an elegant aroma, mineral acidity and unparalleled depth. You don’t know this wine? Hurry and taste it!
For all who do not like Chasselas from the Lavaux: Are they too structured for your liking? Here is one full of verve and freshness. An exquisite subtlety that will leave no wine lover untouched.
When to drink: Clos du Boux is one of those “chameleon” wines that will be just as much appreciated in their youth as in their evolution. You can drink any vintage today, even the one of your year of birth, or wait for a special occasion: Clos du Boux will never disappoint you!
Food pairing: Wonderful as an aperitif with selected, matured hard cheeses or with exquisite charcuterie. It is an equally good companion with delicate freshwater fish or with sushi.2021-02-03 15:23 Wine of the week
