Maurice Gay 1883, Fendant de Sion

White wine | Valais AOC

A Chasselas in the land of the sun!
This Fendant de Sion offers a fruity and mineral nose, with aromas of quince and apricot. A fine and elegant white wine, ideal for any occasion! And since we might ask you during the meal: yes, Fendant is Chasselas. Or more precisely, a type of Vaudois Chasselas which was introduced to Valais in the 19th century and whose grapes split – without squirting – under the pressure of the fingers. Today, Chasselas is the most planted white grape variety in Valais!

Cave St-Pierre

It's the wine at the heart of the Valais. It's the sky, powerful, indomitable. The earth in the hollow of this valley is rich. The stone, the mountains that rise like statues several kilometres into the air. The know-how of those who work the vines and the traditional grape varieties with love. A sip that expresses all this intensely. Give in to the temptation of the terroir in its raw state.
