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)

  • Château de Ripaille White Rhone Blend 2009

    Snoothrank:

    A wonderful light white wine, one of my very favorites for appetizers or social get-togethers, and inexpensive to boot. A little hard to find as the winery is very small and sells mostly in the local region - very little goes to export. But if you find a bottle, grab it. Read More

    Wine review by Anna Carol Ramos


  • Sadly I did Not. I had a busy weekend that involved wine, but sadly that was mostly inventorying, packing, and moving wine around the state of NY! Got about a dozen cases moved closer to home, so now I'm pretty well set for the next few months of drinking! Next bottle up looks like it might very well be 1987 Dunn Napa Valley. Funny how Dunn was ... Read More

    Had a 2005 at Thanksgiving and it was spectacular! A lighter Cab/Sav, but incredibly silky and nice fruit with a light finish that went well with the dinner. Finished another bottle later with a great cigar! Read More

  • Terravin Pinot Noir Omaka Valley Hillside Selection 2006

    Snoothrank:

    It is indeed 50/50 Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc and at 5 years old now it is just starting to unfold. Very tight still and showing citrus and wild honey characters that are overlaid with complexity showing now from the wild ferment and barrel aging. It still is very youthful and needs time yet. It defininitely benefits from a larger glass and mo... Read More
