Infos sur le cépage

Grape variety: Chardonnay
International (planted after 1900) | 386HA in Switzerland (2,64%)

A natural cross between Pinot and Gouais Blanc, Chardonnay was probably born in Saône-et-Loire (FR) where it is mentioned at the end of the 17th century. Its kinship makes it a brother of Gamay, Aligoté, Melon and other lesser-known grape varieties, and allows us to understand why it has long been confused with Aligoté and Pinot Blanc. Its name comes from the Chardonnay village near Mâcon (Burgundy). In Switzerland, it produces wines whose aromas vary greatly depending on the terroir and the vinification, ranging from lime to vanilla butter.

Associated names: Clävner

Grape variety: Kerner
International (planted after 1900) | 25HA in Switzerland (0,17%)

An artificial crossing of Schiava Grossa × Riesling obtained in 1929 at the Weinsberg research center in Baden-Württemberg (D), Kerner was named in honor of Dr Justinus Kerner who wrote drinking songs. Productive and sensitive to powdery mildew, it is resistant to cold. In Switzerland, its wines are reminiscent of Riesling, with lower acidity.

Grape variety: Sauvignon Blanc
International (planted after 1900) | 197 HA in Switzerland (1,32%)

Originally from the Loire Valley where it is mentioned under its old name of Fiers in 1534 in the famous work Gargantua de Rabelais, Sauvignon Blanc takes its name from the wild vine whose leaves are similar. The DNA test revealed that it is a child of Savagnin Blanc, called Heida in Valais, a brother of Chenin Blanc de la Loire, and a progenitor of Cabernet Sauvignon by natural crossing with Cabernet Franc. In Switzerland, this grape variety of medium precocity, very vigorous and sensitive to gray rot, is cultivated practically in all the cantons, where it gives wines high in acidity, marked by aromas of flowers, currants, apples, passion fruit and blackcurrant.
