Chasselas is not a particularly Swiss grape nor is it specific to the Lake Geneva region, but when grown in Switzerland. It gives a wine that reflects this grape at its most subtle and complex.

An early and vigorous plant, Chasselas is noted for its ability to adapt to many soils and micro-climates, bringing forth the subtlety of each terroir.


Floral aspect tending towards lime tree; can be fruity with a mineral character (flint, hazelnut) due to the terroir. This calls to mind the vineyard in flower, dry, gently crumbly, expresses the various terroirs well.
Often very slightly bubbly, always playful, light and easy to drink, all of which makes it the perfect aperitif wine and just right for any occasion when people get together. The fruit tends towards lemon or well-ripened apple.
It is called Fendant in Valais because of a particular feature of the ripe grape: the skin and pulp melt when pressed gently between fingers. The wine’s popularity rose dramatically in the middle of the 19th century thanks to government support. Today it is the second most planted grape variety, after Pinot Noir.
