Eye Straw yellow color, green hues, slightly silvery. Nose Beautiful wine of complexity, a Chenin Blanc combining gourmand fruit and well harmonized by connotations toasted, vanilla brought by the aging of 18 months in half muid. Stuffy The attack on the palate is intense, a beautiful material to discover between aromas of fruit and marriage with the breeding molten in the structure of this wine. The wine has a nice balance despite a powerful complexity. Conclusion A beautiful length is emerging but lacks to this day a little freshness to obtain an ideal depth.
The latest of the Balisiers, Mélopée is a Chenin late harvests harvested late November early December, to concentrate sugars and aromatic complexity. Light amber color, powerful nose with candied fruit aromas, date, pineapple, ripe peach. Mouth with a soft attack, compact mid-palate and a syrupy finish. Very rich wine to accompany a sorbet fruit of passion. Attention: Absolute nectar that triggers the passions! Bottled in very small quantity (500 bottles per year.)
Chasselas is the "Swiss national grape variety". In fact a table grape, it still represents nearly 40% of the vine growing in Switzerland. At Balisiers, it is rather residual. To keep its substance, this grape is severely controlled, at the rate of 70 hectoliters per hectare. At first glance, we notice its golden yellow color.The nose is very flowery with chamomile and linden that stand out. White wine to drink as an aperitif or with cheese specialties, fondue, crusts and beefsteak with cheese, raclette, etc. Tasting: must be drunk within two years of its vintage.
