From holdings both in Fully and in nearby Saillon, the latter of which possesses soils of clay-limestone and loess, Alexandre’s authoritative, ultra-fresh Humagne Rouge ferments with 80% whole clusters and spends two winters in a combination of barriques and demi-muids. With a mineral undergirding that would make many a Northern Rhône wine taste like fruit juice by comparison, this effortlessly combines elegance and power, with a downright electric palate of remarkable length.
