Chasselas

(Chasselas Blanc, Chasselas Doré, Chasselas Croquant, Fendant, Valais, Gutedel, and more ...)

Chasselas maintains a very modest acreage in North America. It is most associated with Switzerland, where it is by far that country’s most planted variety. In Switzerland, it has several other regional names, including Fendant, in the Vaud and Valais districts. Here it is usually vinified into technically clean, dry and mildly fruity white wines. In France, this variety is more often identified as a table grape. Although it is responsible for wine production of the lightly regarded ‘Pouilly Sur Loire’ appellation. It also maintains a small acreage under vine in France’s northern region of Alsace.

Your slight appearance doesn't forewarn the volume of your voice. The most popular entertainer in your Swiss homeland, you perform with precision and technical perfection. While your style has yet to catch on in North America, you remain an alpine legend. – Description from Appellation America (view original content)

    brilliant golden yellow. Aromas of exotic fruits but less so in the mouth. Round and rich with surprisingly nice acid. Enjoyable white wine and new swiss discovery! Read More

  • I knew they would, but couldn't part with them. I figured I'd just keep them forever, pass them along later. They've been stored in really great conditions from the start (cool cellar) and I rotate them every 6 months or so. There are some whites (probably a disaster) and reds. Am I wasting my time and energy on them? Most are Bordeauxs, Rhones,... Read More

(Guess I better try some Chasselas soon.)So, wine-loving, world-traveling Snoothers, throw some ideas my way.  Where to eat, stop for wine, cities you would see more or less on that route.  Keep in mind that we will try very hard to NOT have a car, using trains...
