CHASSELAS – CAVE DE LA COTE ROMAND
In the last mystery case, the Goddess selected a Red from this group of vintners. We liked that, and were very much looking forward to trying this. It’s the first of the 3rd Mystery Case.
It’s from selected vineyards in the Romandie region of western Switzerland, in the cantons of Vaud and Geneva. This wine is made from the Chasselas grape, a traditional and uniquely Swiss varietal.
Yo, Rosemary, Pistachio and Hellmanns over here want to talk to you about those bone-in skin-on chicken thighs he is going to roast. Gonna need your help too with the potato wedges that went in 20 minutes earlier.
No citrusy flavours. Very Light. And I like it. A LOT.
This is one I think the Triumvirate should go back and revisit – I’ll bet it’s better than “K” remembers it.
Most definitely a wine to enjoy by itself or with something light in food fare. It would be great with a corn on the cob feast.
