Info about the grape variety

Grape variety: Chasselas
Indigenous | 3672 HA in Switzerland (25,14%)

The most common white grape variety in Switzerland, Chasselas is a very old variety originating in the Lake Geneva region, where it was already known as Fendant in the 17th century. It is a wine that expresses the terroirs where it is grown beautifully. The great Chasselas give complex and rich wines, presenting a range of fruity, floral and mineral flavors, with good acidity which makes them suitable to age in the cellar for a few years.

Associated names: Fendant, Gutedel

Grape variety: Pinot Gris
Traditional (planted before 1900) | 233 HA in Switzerland (1,59%)

A color mutation of Pinot Noir that appeared independently in several places, Pinot Gris was first mentioned in 1711 in Baden-Württemberg (D) under the name Ruländer. In Switzerland, this early variety and relatively sensitive to mildew is called Grauburgunder in German Switzerland, and Malvoisie in Valais, borrowing this name from the real Italian Malvasia (Malvasia Bianca) which was renowned for its sweet wines. Its wines can be dry, with aromas of hazelnut and a little bitterness, or sweet (“withered”), with aromas of quince and apricot.
