The Wine

Details

Always a lovely wine. 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, 2013 and 2014 won gold medals, the 2009 again in 2013.

Why we have it:

It is consistently good and ages very nicely too.

Why you should pick this wine:

You remember it!

What to expect:

Smooth, rich and fresh Chasselas, all at once.

Serving Suggestions:

With fish meuniere, Swiss "filets de perche", pan fried trout with hazelnut butter.

Tasting Notes

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.
