Details

This is a Fendant with a great structure. The influence of the Vétroz soil is found in the full bouquet with a strong flint note, far more than you might normally expect with Chasselas. There is also more fruit on the palate.

Serving Suggestions:

Chasselas goes with nearly everything, as it is so versatile. The variety's "neutrality" is an asset here. Classic matches are of course the traditional cheese dishes, and fresh water fish such as perch and trout. But you'd be surprised how well it goes with a Sunday roast, for example. One of my favourite matches for this particular fendant was trout with herb butter and roasted hazelnuts. Refrain from lemon ;)

In Depth:

The grape is not unclustered and not sugared. This wine is lightly pressured. The clear must is drawn off after the solid matter has settled. The first and the second fermentations are realized under temperature control.

The appellation "Vétroz Grand Cru", limited to four grape varieties, designates wines produced according to regulations established in 1993, which require limited yields and rigorous standards of vinification. For each vintage a commission of judges inspects and certifies all plots designated as Grand Cru.

Wonderful pairing!

Fendant Balavaud Grand Cru

Of particular interest was the Fendant
which whilst lovely on its own, with raclette and gherkin made one of the
most sensational pairings I can recollect.
