The family estate was created in the late sixties by André Barraud who handed it over to his grandson Hervé in 2011. With a surface area of 7.5 hectares, the plots of land, facing south and facing Lake Geneva and the Alps, are cultivated according to the strict ecological guidelines of integrated production (IP) of Vitiswiss. The Barraud estate is located in the heart of the Vaud coast, between Lausanne and Geneva. All the grapes are vinified at the estate in the appellation d'origine contrôlée Tartegnin, a small village of the same name, on the hill overlooking Rolle. Hervé Barraud also looks after the vines of the Domaine Les Maréchales in Tartegnin, owned by the Piguet family. We had a lot of fun visiting the Barraud family, Hervé and his wife Isabelle, a great time of sharing and laughter.
Demanding and low yielding, Pinot Gris needs specific soils (chalky, dry and especially sunny) to develop its rich aromas and typical structure. Full-bodied, round and long in the mouth, vinified with a slight residual sugar, this Pinot Gris presents complex aromas of undergrowth, sometimes slightly smoky and floral.
