Product Name

Simon Maye & Fils produce two traditional Fendants from vineyards in Chamoson, Trémazières and Fauconnier. In the past we have had both Fendants but have decided that Fauconnier works best in our range of Fendants. With its hints of the white flowers that you find in Alpine meadows to go along with the classic fruity minerality you expect from a Fendant. Fauconnier. It comes from a Chasselas vineyard in the lieu-dit "Prés des Pierres" where the other vineyards are Pinot Noir and Syrah. (Trèmazières is itself a lieu-dit and is also where the Païen (Heida) vineyard is found.)

Fondue and raclette are the traditional Swiss cheese dishes that you would pair with a Fendant and the other classic is lake (freshwater) fish such as perch. It also works well with other white meat dishes especially if they are in a cream sauce.
