A Tunisian-Swiss enterprise that began in 2002 with the building of a large gravity-fed and highly automated winery in the hills north of Grombalia in Cap Bon.

Grapes are sourced from a variety of appellations from contract growers. The winery has unofficial ‘Grand Cru’ and ‘Premier Cru’ designations, whereby the title is awarded by an internal tasting panel.

    Jour et Nuit White

    Grapes: 80% Chardonnay, 20% Sauvignon

    Clean palate. Fresh and simple, showing some apple fruit and light peach. No oak, little length.

  • **½

    Jour et Nuit Red (1st vintage from library stock) 2002

    Grapes: 70% Syrah, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

    Ruby red, some orange at the edges. Developed sweet nose with plums, dusty cedar and candied peel. Chunky on the palate with dried red berry characters, cherry and spice. Pleasant and drinkable but now tiring.

  • **

    Didona Chardonnay

    Deep straw colour. Clean, fresh nose, though oak dominant over any Chardonnay character. Tropical notes on the palate but two-dimensional overall.

  • **½

    Didona Red

    Grapes: 80% Syrah, 20% Merlot

    Pale red. High tone plum, some spice, oak smoke and cocoa. Soft palate feel. Medium tannins, fair balance and reasonable length.

    Didona Reserve Red

    Grapes: 90% Syrah, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. 10 months in oak.

    Muted on the nose. Soft palate, some herb, ripe plum and spice. Still closed, but hinting at more depth.
