Rèze du Haut Plateau - Steve Bettschen metaPHUSIS 2022
A nature lover, Steve Bettschen is first and foremost a great wine connoisseur following eleven years spent with a renowned Swiss wine merchant. Called by the land and production, he bought his first vine in 2007.
Surrounded by the best French-speaking winegrowers, he became a winemaker and quickly increased his production, also thanks to the purchase of grapes from friendly winegrowers.
The Phusis range designates the wines from its own vines: Clos du Mormont (La Sarraz / Côtes de l’Orbe / Vaud) – Orny (Côtes de l’Orbe / Vaud) – Sensine (Conthey / Valais)
Its production from the purchase of grapes is called metaPHUSIS.

Grape variety: Rèze is one of the oldest Valais grape varieties: it is in fact mentioned in the famous document of Anniviers Register from 1313. But this grape variety almost disappeared because it was replaced in the middle of the 19th century.th century by Chasselas, easier to cultivate and more productive. Currently, there are less than 3 ha left in the entire canton.
|Tasting: Pale yellow, clear with lemon highlights. On the first nose, we have white fruits, fruit tree flowers on a background of melon, wheat and vine peach. The entry into the mouth is broad and supple. The body evolves slowly, with a silky texture and ends with fine bitterness, with citrus peel and a fine woody touch which will quickly blend into the wine (August 2023).
