You remember it!
It is consistently good and ages very nicely too.
Smooth, rich and fresh Chasselas, all at once.

This wine with its quirky Lizard label is one of the premier wines of the Chablais, if not the entire Vaud - and one of the most famous Chasselas worldwide.

Serve at 8-10°C, on its own or with freshwater fish or white meat dishes. It is made from Chasselas grapes grown on the steeply terraced vineyards climbing the hills behind the town of Aigle and its fairytale Château. The soil is light gravel/shale and the vineyards have full exposure to the sun. The warm dry Foehn winds maintain the microclimate which remains right up until the harvest, ensuring ripening beyond the reach of the dampness and mists of autumn and protecting the grapes from rot.

Each of the 2009, 2011, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 won gold medals, the 2009 both in 2010 and in 2013 ;)

Tasting Notes

The wine has a pale golden yellow colour with a rich, floral nose and hints of caramel. On the palate it is dry, predominantly mineral yet with good fruit following. The finish is initially warming, then develops with a dry minerality and a beautiful elegant bitterness that is extremely long.
