Grape variety king of Burgundy. Considered producing one of the finest wines in the world. At the Balisiers, Chardonnay fermentations in amphorae for 12 months. The amphora rearing for Chardonnay brings us a slow oxygenation of the wine which optimizes the expression of the typicity of the grape variety. It is the richest and most elaborate white wine with Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. It is grown at very low yield. Very exuberant nose with vine peach, apricot and yellow apple. The lively mouth becomes silky with a nice fat and then buttery notes of yellow flowers. Mineral touch on a long finish. He is happy to accompany fricassee of wild mushrooms, raw or smoked salmon and all the fish of the lake. It is also an ideal aperitif wine.
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.)
Pinot Blanc is a grape originally planted in Alsace and on the banks of the Rhine, but recently this specialty has acquired a new reputation as grape variety of the Geneva vineyards. Our Pinot Blanc is grown on the left bank, Perly and Castle Sierne (Veyrier). Lemon yellow color. This Pinot Blanc reveals a fleshy nose where the yellow apple dominates. The palate is harmonious with a nice fresh attack, a round mid-palate with hints of sweet fruit and a lemony finish. Wine aperitif, it is consumed with salmon carpaccio with lime, vegetable pie and also with the white fish of the lake. Tasting: ready to drink three years after bottling.
