    Chenin blanc

    In 2004, the team of Balisiers decided to proceed to a new experience of white encépagement. After multiple tastings, a systematic study of the potentialities of our terroir at Château Barillet and Vallon de l’Allondon (Russin), we chose the Loire’s historical grape variety: Chenin Blanc. First in Switzerland, 3 hectares of Chenin Blanc from the mass selection of Gibault nurseries (Jugné sur Loire) were planted in 2004 and 2005 with an open lyre trellis. Chenin is aged 12 months in amphora without malolactic fermentation to keep all its freshness. The Chenin Blanc will allow us to raise two types of radically different wines: a dry white wine and mineral and our first sweet wine (noble grains) from sorting in late harvests.

    Riesling-Sylvaner

    A marriage between Riesling and Madeleine Royale, the Riesling-Sylvaner was selected at the beginning of the century by a prominent professor of Swiss viticulture, Professor Muller-Thurgau. It is currently one of the most cultivated white varieties in the world, from California to South Africa through the countries of the East, Alsace, Germany, etc. At Balisiers, Riesling-Sylvaner has a very elegant muscatée note. It is the earliest grape variety of our estate with which the grape harvest usually begins. Indeed, it must be harvested early to avoid losing its natural acidity. It is drunk well refreshed as an aperitif and also accompanies a cold buffet or appetizers. Some enjoy it with shellfish and seafood, even with cheese dishes, instead of chasselas. Very pale yellow color.

    Chardonnay

    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.

    Sauvignon Blanc

    Sauvignon Blanc has the distinction of being raised without second fermentation (malolactic) to keep all its liveliness. Our Sauvignon Blanc is grown on the gravelly soil of Plan-les-Ouates, on the Rive Gauche du Rhône. Tasting: with its pale color we do not expect such an exotic explosion on the nose! Indeed, this very aromatic Sauvignon is marked by mango, exotic fruits and lime. On the palate, it is still intense with citrus fruits and blackcurrant buds. There is also a nice fat and a long acidulous finish. “The Sauvignon Blanc, which succeeds very well in the canton of Geneva, seduced us by the aromatic complexity which revealed the blackcurrant bud, the elderflower, the tomato leaf, evolving in a beautiful expression and a varietal freshness typical of the variety. ” (24h)
