History

First cultivated near Lake Leman, Chasselas is known in Valais under its old name “Fendant” (meaning “to break open”) – so called because of the way ripe berries crack up when gently pressed with one’s finger. Fendant arrived in the canton of Valais in the XIXth century, where it became the main local grape variety following the phylloxera

Winemaking

Slow and gentle pressing followed by cold alcoholic fermentation and several months of tank aging (during which malolactic fermentation occurs) are practiced to guarantee optimal body and roundness while preserving the wine’s fresh and delicate aromas.

Colour

Straw yellow

Nose

Discrete, it gives up distinct lime blossom and honey aromas intermixed with white flower notes.

Palate

A classy and unctuous structure that offers a smooth and round mouthfeel from start to finish.

Food pairings

Fendant is traditionally served with Swiss specialties such as fondue or raclette. It will also work as a sipper or with fish and seafood.
