Lavaux, wines and soil
The vineyard of Lavaux stretches from Lausanne to Chillon, built in a unique and spectacular terraced landscape that overlooks the Léman (Lake Geneva). The abundant sun shines on the vineyard's ideal exposure, benefitting from the reverberation of the sun in the lake and store its heat in the terraces’ stone walls. The wines are well-structured and complex, characterized by notes of honey, toast, and by their persistent finish.
