Jean-René Germanier

Valais | Vétroz

Domaine Jean-René Germanier is located in Balavaud, a hamlet of the commune of Vétroz situated at the heart of the Valais and the Rhône Valley on the Swiss side of the Alps, famous for its warm, dry microclimate in the summer months. Out of love for the art of winemaking, quality is the highest priority. Gilles Besse and his uncle Jean-René Germanier are committed to quality and to producing wines with pronounced character, which for them means limiting their yields. They are constantly in search of innovative winemaking methods, extracting the true character of their terroirs, and seeking forgotten varieties that are awaiting rediscovery.

Jean-René Germanier 2016 Amigne de Vétroz (2 Bees)

This is an indigenous variety without any known relatives. There are only about 40ha planted in the world, 30ha are in the Vétroz in the Valais. This grape is made completely dry, off-dry, and as a noble sweet wine. The 2 Bees has 15 grams of sugar, but also high acidity, so it comes across drier than a German halbtrocken.
