Quality and Altitude. Chardonnay, Petite Arvine, Pinot Noir and lePrisonnier are results of this path through wineyards and in the Cellar.

In 2001 the company was born but the craft of winemaker in Anselmet family dates back to 1585. A knowledge among the rows and in the cellar that is transmitted from generation through generation with unchanged passion.

The mountain has always been considered as a synonym for open spaces and freedom. But attending the mountain in a “sweet” way, without demanding what it can not offer, respecting what it can give us, is the first act of strong responsibility. An incipit that smells of warning to the simple ‘user’ of this landscape, but which instead wants to be strongly connected to a family of Valle d’Aosta, which has made environmental responsibility an indispensable dogma. A vigorous revindication, that of the Anselmet, which translates not only into an awareness of one’s abilities and limitations, but above all transforms into effective maturity. Yes, as the first sure track of an Anselmet winemaker is in 1585 with a contract to purchase a vineyard in Villeneuve. Since then, the commitment to cultivate the vine is handed down from generation to generation until the end of the ’70s.

An unexpected article on LePrisonnier coming out on GdC

Here’s a very well-structured article on LePrisonnier: its origin, the path that made it more than its organoleptic characteristics.

Recently the historic vineyard has been expanded in two directions, on the one hand terraced with chestnut trunks for Increase the surface with the grapes in the historical vineyard. On the other hand, it has recovered a plot already cultivated with vines, but slightly overlooked by referring to the vineyard of the young Henri who started his activity in 2013 by setting up La Plantze, producing a couple of labels.

Fortunately, the frosts that characterized this early spring in the valley did not cause irreparable damage.

About twenty seedlings of the new vineyard were about to be replanted after a daytime walk through the vineyard. Now they will be a little bit more, but nothing compared to the damage caused by frost in Morgex vineyards in High Valley.

The WineSpectator tasting has a precise and well-established procedure, it is a blind taste, done without knowing the producer, the bottle is bought and evaluated by the editors, full proof and transparency to protect consumers who rely on the judgment of experts as judges.

For us any wine – said Giorgio Anselmet – from the simplest up to the award-winning Semel as Pater and Chardonnay élève en fût de chêne, deserves the same care and attention both in the winery and in the vineyard. Our company has a reputation for high quality, earned through years of hard work, and we work hard every day to keep it; surely the judgment of Wine Spectator makes me doubly happy just because to win it was a wine for us considered basic and no least why it keeps highest the value of my land.

As a matter of fact, the Cellar in Villeneuve tends to send in tasting for publication on the guides the wines of top range. At this very moment the 2017 results are now coming out: GamberoRosso awarded “Tre Bicchieri” to Chardonnay élève en fût de chêne, SlowFood says Petite Arvine is a “GrandeVino”, Bibenda has awarded Le Prisoner with the “5 Grappoli” flag; receive from Wine Spectator such a high score for a base wine is a source of great pride.
