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)

  • Pierre Gonon Vin de France 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Clear, very pale straw color. Very interesting nose--a bready, yeasty thing that I get a lot from Champagnes. That diminishes pretty quickly to a fairly neutral nose. VERY DELICATE on the palate. Very light fruit flavors--apple, peach. Easy on the back palate. Smooth finish. US$29.99 at HI Time in Costa Mesa. (This is an OK white wine, b... Read More

  • Being a cab lover I am hesitant to stray from what I like. On a recent occasion I had the opportunity to try a Zinfandel and to my amazement, it had some of the same attributes of the cabernets I love so well. I perused Snooth and stopped on a particular zin from Bogle vineyards. Gregory Dal Piaz gave it a nice rating and being a member of Snoot... Read More

    Wine review by martins2002


  • 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
