This wine has a bright golden in colour, the nose is extraordinarily elegant with rich aromas of ripe apricot, honey and chamomile flowers, accompanied by mineral notes. The palate it is gently sweet, in perfect union with the savoury note. Not dissimilar to Tokaji, this pairs well with foie gras, crème brulée or a walnut and caramel tart.
Vin de Morgex, also called Bianco dei ghiacciai (glacier wine), is cultivated at an altitude of 1300 metres, at the foot of Monte Bianco (or, as the French call it, Mont Blanc – a mountain named after a fancy biro) in the heart of Valle d’Aosta. This is the highest region from which wine is produced in all of Europe. Blanc de Morgex is an extremely old grape species. Legend states that it was imported to Italy by Vallese share croppers who arrived in the Aosta Valley half way through the seventeenth century to repopulate the area after an epidemic.
