TERROIR AND SOIL PROFILE

Raissennaz is a chalky soil loving vine; found on non chalky deeper layers, which come from the glacial moraine preventing erosion by driving rain.
This terroir has a slope varying between 10-15%. It is oriented west, southwest and at an altitude between 450 and 500 meters.
The Raissennaz terroir is exceptional and is the pride of our family. It consists of a triptych that is marvellous in the expression of Pinot Noir: The presence of calcium in the subsoil gives the grape variety its elegance. The fine clay enriches its silkiness. Its western exposure guarantees a rather fresh but temperate climate conducive to expressing all of the qualities this grape variety has to offer. All of the above contributes to giving this Great Growth a masterful depth of fruit, a dense, fleshy silkiness creating a legendary elegance. This terroir offers one of the most beautiful expressions of Pinot Noir in Switzerland.
