Cayas is a pioneer
Cayas is a pioneer, a trigger for the quality revolution among Valais wines and for respect for the environment. Its two years of barrel maturing quickly make it stand out from the crowd. Since it was created in 1995, it has been acclaimed nationally and internationally by an enthusiastic press and has won numerous awards. Robert Parker gives it top scores — four vintages are given 94/100. It is no coincidence that every good sommelier in the world thinks Cayas when Swiss wine is mentioned. The architects of this success, Jean-René Germanier and Gilles Besse, have made Syrah their ambassador for this adventure, this renewal. Both have an innate understanding of the language of spicy notes — pepper, cloves — and wild berries, red fruits — cherry, blackcurrant, raspberry and blackberry. They know the potential of Syrah, a grape that is increasingly planted in Valais. To its own language they what a barrel can offer wine, a more complex form of speech,
in the end giving it far more than a pleasant discourse.
