Winemaker Notes: 

"The 2022 Enfer d’Arvier pours a typical saturated maroon in the glass, its inkiness hinting at the wine’s notable concentration of fruit. The nose is exuberant, brimming with black cherries, sun-drenched stones, tiny mountain flowers, and a tasteful touch of wild earthiness. The huge diurnal shifts between this zone’s scorching days—“Enfer d’Arvier,” after all, means “The Hell of Arvier”—and chilly nights expresses itself in a palate tango of rapier-like acidity and thick, luscious fruit. 

The vineyards of the Enfer d’Arvier appellation are situated in an amphitheater-shaped site on steep slopes in a high-altitude valley, which receives ample sun. The shape of this “bowl” of vineyards effectively concentrates the heat of the sun, thus giving birth to the “hell of Arvier” moniker. Danilo Thomain is the only independent vigneron working this tiny appellation only five hectares in size. The Thomain family works one hectare of vineyards here in the shadow of Mont Blanc. A traditional wine made from the Petit Rouge grape and vinified in cuve, it has a compelling rusticity with a wild berry impression and a lively freshness on the palate."
