Viticulture Terraced vineyard with a gentle slope. Manual cultivation. Planting density 9'000 vines/hectare. Yield 0.7 kg/cep
Grape Sauvignon Blanc
Terroir and soil A gravelly soil in a very limited area of the Epesses appellation is favourable to the cultivation of Sauvignon Blanc and gives the wine a structure and fullness considered exceptional. The resulting wines have an intense expression of the grape variety on a par with the great wines of the Loire (F)
Vinification Aged in barrels for 10 months with regular stirring
Alcohol 14%
Degustation Intense aromas of blackcurrant, green currant and exotic fruit (mango, lychee). On the palate, the wine develops the same intense, smooth and rich flavours
Ageing 7 to 10 years
Food and wine pairing Depending on the vintage, ageing in oak barrels enriches the wine, which goes well with seafood, foie gras, curry or an old Gruyère cheese
History The name "BUXUS" means boxwood in Latin. The smell of the leaves of this shrub is one of the major aromas of Sauvignon Blanc

The winery 
Louis-Philippe Bovard – whose name is in its 10th generation – took the helm of his family’s 13-hectare estate in 1983. He is a pioneer in the field and is responsible, among other things, for the introduction of new grape varieties (Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah), the maturing of Chasselas in barrels, the creation of the Conservatoire Mondial du Chasselas (with the aim of researching older, more qualitative selections) and the creation of an important collection of old Dézaley vintages. The estate has been awarded the highest distinctions. It is one of the icons of Swiss wine and enjoys international recognition.

Reputation

Louis-Philippe Bovard is one of the founding members of the Barony of Dézaley, Arte Vitis (innovative winegrowers from the canton of Vaud) and the "Mémoire des vins suisses".
