Backing onto the foothills of the Alps, this superb vineyard towers majestically into the sky. The steepness of its terraces seems to defy the laws of equilibrium, ensuring generous isolation and maximum drainage. Fhn winds and warm breezes slide between the vinestocks right up to the time when the grapes are perfectly ripe. Beyond the reach of the damp air and mists of autumn, the grapes receive maximum protection from rot. The excellent condition and ripeness of the grape allied to yield limitation are the two keys to the quality of Aigle ’Les Murailles’ and its reputation as the supreme wine of Vaud.
Suggestions: appetizers, prawn cocktail, grilled or fried fish, raclette, cheese fondue, ham, rabbit, chicken, cold roast pork, hard cheese. Oriental cuisine: light dishes, such as maki or nigiri sushi.
Created in 1908, the Badoux family business quickly associated Aigle with the famous vineyard of Murailles. In those years, the wines of the region, like those of Lavaux, already enjoyed an enviable reputation for high-sugar content combined with low acidity. In 1940, the next generation inherited a business which was still modest in scale. Gradually, Badoux’s reputation spread throughout Switzerland and beyond, mainly to Germany and the United States.
