Reviews and Ratings

It might still be a bit warm to get out the cheese fondue set, but this Chasselas is the perfect wine if you are so inclined. The key to Chasselas with this heavy cheese dish is the gentle, ripe fruits and zippy acidity, both on ample display here. If you don’t want to get the pot and burner out, think raclette dish instead where all that cheese is nicely off set by potatoes, gherkins, dried meats and pickled onions. Chasselas is also very fresh and vibrant for sipping on its own. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
