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)

  • 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

  • Been drinking  a lot more Spanish whites lately due to the fact that the weather has picked up here in the UK. I know I'm a little biased when it comes to Spanish wine but  I've noticed there has been a lot more choice.Albarino ( Rias Baixas) is perhaps the most well known and widely available being Spains Signature white wine but Verdejo and Vi...

  • 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
