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
