Aigle Les Murailles

The reference Swiss Chasselas. 2015 just arrived.

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.

More about this wine

Why we have it
It is consistently good and ages very nicely too.
Why choose this
You remember it!
What to expect
Smooth, rich and fresh Chasselas, all at once.
How to serve it
With fish meuniere, Swiss "filets de perche", pan fried trout with hazelnut butter.

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.



Tasting Notes

2013: ...

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.

Reviews

Wow! It's the best wine in the world, and your handling of it was perfect! Thank you. Will order more soon!
