Steingrüble Chasselas 2015

This needed to warm up from its stay in the fridge, and also needed air. Then the nose shows intense, almost pungent, minerality, and something that reminded me of day-old roast chicken pulled out of the fridge. Let’s call it a “poultry note.” Very lean and minerally in the mouth. No fruit. Short finish. Not my cup of tea. I haven’t had a Chasselas (Gutedel) in decades, and it’s really not my cup of tea, so I can’t rate this.

UPDATE: Night 2. Significantly friendlier and less quirky. Getting a little bruised pear along with much more settled minerality in the nose. A note of light honey. Softer and lengthier in mouth. Very bright and pure. Now that it’s making sense to me, I’m go giving it a numerical rating.

I'll rate this, when we get to it, hopefully not chicken wine.

Valais Fendant 2017

Fendant is my choice for Chasselas. This wine is has pleasurable aromas of white mountain flowers, a dash of fresh herbs, and rocks taken straight from a mountain stream. The flavors are fresh and bright. The balance is superb and the acidity is just right. I just noticed the pleasing long finish of which I didn’t expect. Cheeses and fish are a delight with this wine. — a month ago

Chat Fou Côtes du Rhône Grenache 2016

Chat Fou is a unique mix of both red and white grapes - primarily Grenache with about 15% Clairette; Viognier, and Chasselas. It’s like a cousin to a GSM but with a softer, lighter, touch - fresher and less dense. Floral aromas with brambly raspberry, spiced red cherry flavors, and wet granite. Mild tannins with medium high acid. — 2 months ago
