Wines

With their unique origins in terms of terroir, climate, and grape diversity, the wines of Domaine Chappaz reflect Marie-Thérèse’s approach to the environment and her passionate quest for authenticity and quality.

Her respect for nature manifests in biodynamics, a gentle agricultural method that acknowledges the close relationship between the vine and the cosmos. With the aim of excellence, Marie-Thérèse patiently and humbly seeks to create wines that fully represent their respective terroirs. 

Vinification is as natural as possible at every stage, using only indigenous yeasts and a minimum of outside inputs, to produce a sensory experience that is worthy of this region that she so cherishes.





Fendant

Fendant La Liaudisaz 2021


Varietal : Chasselas

Vineyard of origin : Fully La Liaudisaz

Sold out

Description: Friendly and aperitif wine from Muscat terroirs

Tasting note: The first expression of this Fendant is a very floral frame that reveals elderflower and apricot blossom; then aeration in the glass gives way to a scent of citrus sorbet. Its mouth is round and surprising with a saline finish..

Recommended pairings: Perfect for all aperitifs, as well as pretty fish accompanied by a slightly lemony creamy sauce.

Serving temperature: 6-8°C

Ageing: up to 5 years

 

Fendant Coteaux de Plamont 2021


Varietal : Chasselas

Vineyard of origin : Fully Plamont

Sold out

Description: Plot wine from a gently sloping loess on granite terroir located at an altitude of 650 meters

Tasting note: Drier and more mineral than the Fendant La Liaudisaz, this one is expressed by very lively notes of lemon but also of lime blossom and toasted bread. Its lemony side gives it a nice minerality and nice light bitterness on the finish. This Fendant is the very expression of a beautiful marriage between terroir and grape variety. It is the granites of the Plamont terroir that give it this verticality.

Recommended pairings: The perch fillets will be its ideal companion or a slightly spicy Thai dish.

Serving temperature: 6-8°C

Ageing: up to 5 years

Description: This 100% Sylvaner cuvée benefited from skin maceration for nearly a month and a half, which explains its color slightly tinged with orange reflections. The vinification was carried out without added sulphites for nearly six months in concrete eggs.

Tasting note: What stands out immediately when discovering this Grain Orange cuvée is its first nose which naturally evokes orange gingerbread, but also bitter almond and even hops. For an optimal tasting it is even advisable to open it a day before serving it.

Serving temperature: 8°C

Tasting note: Bright and juicy, the aromatic palette leaves room for curiosity, mixing a myriad of citrus fruits including pink grapefruit in the lead, but also lychee, followed by an elegant marriage between rhubarb and wild strawberry. The 2021 vintage reveals a mouth representative of the dry Petite Arvine, on a saline finish.

Serving temperature: 8°C

Ageing: 5-15 years

Ermitage

Grain Ermitage Président Troillet 2021


Varietal : Ermitage

Vineyard of origin : Fully Les Claives

Panier vers Boutique

Tasting note: while waiting to celebrate their centenary in 2024, our famous hermitage vines in "valaisanne pruning" or "corkscrew" contribute to the elegance of this cuvée and reveal all the expression of the 2021 vintage. The nose is lively with the subtle marriage of vanilla and a skilful blend of Indian spices, all supported by light touches of noble wood. The palate is ample, balanced with a hint of acidity.

White Blend

Assemblage Blanc sec Sylvaner, Marsanne et Petite Arvine 2021


Varietals : Ermitage, Petite Arvine, Sylvaner

Vineyards of origin : several different vineyard plots

Panier vers Boutique

"Limited Quantities"

Tasting note: this white blend cuvée is a new creation each year by the grape varieties that make it up. The 2021 vintage is a trio composed of Petite Arvine, Sylvaner and Marsanne which, through the magic of our tastings to create it, are found in equal parts within this pretty cuvée. The first nose reveals lemon zest, honeysuckle with a slightly toasted note. In the mouth, the petite arvine provides its freshness, the sylvaner its fullness and the marsanne its beautiful bitterness. It is a creative wine that leaves room for imagination, harmony and that sublimates the alchemy of this blend.

Serving temperature: 8°C

Ageing: 2-8 years

Au Fil des Treilles 2021


Varietal :

Vineyards of origin : several different vineyard plots

Panier vers Boutique

"Limited Quantities"

Tasting note: This new cuvée is a tribute to the many trellises that emerge from our Claives terroirs. The idea is to offer a wine that brings together all these trellises in a unique cuvée that gives pride of place to the wide variety of grape varieties that make them up. Its aging in 500-litre barrels reveals a very aromatic wine whose color and flavors call for an agreement with Arctic char from the lake and its Hollandaise sauce with sweet lemony notes or trout carpaccio.

Serving temperature: 8°C

Ageing: 2-8 years

Grain Cinq Président Troillet 2021


Varietals : Ermitage, Païen, Petite Arvine, Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner

Vineyards of origin : Fully Combe d'Enfer, Fully Les Claives

Panier vers Boutique

Description: Wine from the granitic terroir expressed by a subtle marriage between the Petite Arvine, the Ermitage, the Païen, the Pinot blanc and the Sylvaner, all from the Claives terroir, harvested and vinified together.

Tasting note: All in elegance, the olfactory notes oscillate between orange zest and small white flowers which, sometimes, invade the hedges; a slight iodized hint appears on the finish. On the palate, this wine offers density with its pastry and brioche bread notes that do not rule out the saline finish of the Arvine. This wine is the very expression of the verticality of the granite terroir of Les Claives.

Serving temperature: 8°C

Ageing: 2-8 years

Panier vers Boutique

Tasting note: the singularity of this terroir fills us with emotion. It is the terroir that speaks above all else! It is a very open wine which expresses the luminous moments of 2021. We find the "smoky" side, brought by the vine itself and this 2021 vintage finds its energy thanks to the aromas of crunchy fruits, on a supple mouth and a finish with velvet contours. Immediate pleasure guaranteed!

Panier vers Boutique

Tasting note: imagine a fir forest with its carpet of needles, all embellished with a hint of menthol and you will get the olfactory notes of this cuvée des Esserts 2021.

There is also a very beautiful taste harmony with silky tannins, already melted. It is an elegant pinot with still some aging notes when we invite you to discover it but with a little time they will disappear with delicacy.

Ageing: 3 years

Grain Pinot Charrat 2021


Varietal : Pinot Noir

Vineyards of origin : Charrat Champ Dury, Charrat Les Esserts

Panier vers Boutique

Tasting note: the 2021 vintage of this Grain Pinot Charrat offers the quintessence of a powerful wine, all in depth with a beautiful aromatic complexity that goes from cedar to soft wood (licorice) with a finish reminiscent of blackberries. The mouth is fleshy. It is a great wine that will allow its youth to be tamed or, if you have the patience, can be forgotten in the cellar.

Humagne Rouge

Grain Sauvage 2021


Varietal : Humagne Rouge

Vineyard of origin : Fully Planche Billon

Panier vers Boutique

Tasting note: when it does not blend with cornalin in the Grain Mariage cuvée, the red Humagne from the Combe d’Enfer seeks to flourish on its own in this Grain Sauvage cuvée produced exclusively in magnum. Blond tobacco and gentian root are the top notes of this 2021 vintage, while violet expresses itself on a palate that can be described as ethereal.

Serving temperature: 15°C

Ageing: 10 years

Tasting note: The eyes will appreciate its ruby shine, the nose, its variation of red fruits such as very ripe cherry and raspberry, not to mention the aromas of hearth smoke which recall the subtle presence of Syrah. On the palate, we bite into this assortment of red fruits.

Recommended pairings: Let yourself be tempted by a knob of raw ham or a Valais plate to taste it.

Serving temperature: 15°C

Ageing: 5 years

Dôle La Liaudisaz 2021


Varietals : Gamay, Pinot Noir

Vineyards of origin : several different vineyard plots

Sold out

Description : 70% Pinot and 30% Gamay are the "traditional" recipe of "La Dôle" for this 2021 vintage.

Tasting note: Entirely de-stemmed, the grape varieties once blended offer a “fresh” wine thanks to the dynamism of the Gamay and “enveloped” by the touch of velvet provided by the Pinot. Here too, the basket of red fruits on the nose and in the mouth is in the spotlight. The tannins are already melted.

Recommended pairings: the delicacy of this Dôle is a call for small pork chops quivering on the barbecue.

Serving temperature: 15°C

Ageing: 10 years

Petit Nature 2021

Vineyards of origin : several different vineyard plots

Panier vers Boutique

Description : Without added sulphites and aged entirely in barrels, the Petit Nature vintage 2021 is 100% Pinot.

Tasting note: It contains less CO2 than in previous years, which gives it a less austere side while having preserved its slightly "beading" side in the mouth with a chewy texture that we appreciate. The nose is a plunge into a basket of red fruits accompanied by a slight subtle woodiness reminiscent of cedar and sandalwood. 

Recommended pairings: This small format of 2dl is ideal for the picnic ... and the hiking bag

Serving temperature: 15°C

Ageing: To be determined

La Petite Grange 2020


Varietals : Diolinoir, Gallota, Gamaret, Pinot Noir

Vineyards of origin : several different vineyard plots

Sold out

Tasting notes: The vintages follow one another and end up resembling each other for this blending vintage whose first note could evoke Provence and its scrubland. In 2021, Pinot Noir rubbed shoulders with Gamaret, Galotta and Diolinoir. To the evocations of the garrigue are added notes of prune, very ripe black fruits but also tonka bean.

Since 2019 we have extended the aging of this cuvée, which allows you to perceive much more supple tannins in the mouth.

Wine pairings: To accompany with parsley ham or a very nice charcuterie platter.

Grain Mariage 2021


Varietals : Cornalin, Humagne Rouge

Vineyard of origin : Leytron Champs Longs

Panier vers Boutique

Tasting note: it is a 50/50 marriage on this vintage of red humagne and cornalin, but it is also and above all a wine that expresses the alpine vineyard in all its splendour. You can find authentic Valais here. It is a wine to marry with hunting meat that the notes of violet, morello cherry will magnify.

Serving temperature: 16°C

Ageing: 5 years

Grain Noir 2021


Varietals : Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot

Vineyard of origin : Fully La Liaudisaz

Panier vers Boutique

Tasting notes: the employees of the estate who have passed through Anjou in France will tell you that this Grain Noir 2021 has a "Ligerian" side, which gives it in particular the Cabernet Franc which combines wonderfully with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. The nose initially evokes tarragon, fir bud and gently draws towards blackcurrant on the finish. The tannins are supple and the light woodiness brings velvet and comfort during its tasting.

Serving temperature: 17-18°C

Ageing: 10-15 years

Sweet Wines

Grain Noble Petite Arvine, Marsanne, Pinot Gris 2019


Varietals : Ermitage, Petite Arvine, Pinot Blanc

Vineyard of origin : Fully Les Claives

Panier vers Boutique

Tasting note: Marsanne Blanche, Petite Arvine and Pinot Gris make up the blend of this Grain Noble cuvée. This sweet wine matures for at least two years in barrels to obtain an ideal balance. Its aromas skilfully mix currants, cinnamon, bitter orange, apple jelly and fruit paste. The taste buds will delight in a delicate nectar, with an elegant and always controlled sugar. Supported and chiseled by a nice woodiness, less sweet than some years (176g/l of residual sugar), it will also be appreciated when young.

Serving temperature: 8°C

Ageing: 20 years

Grain par Grain Petite Arvine 2020


Varietal : Petite Arvine

Vineyard of origin : Fully Les Claives

Panier vers Boutique

Tasting note: It's not every year that the Grain par Grain cuvée shows up in our tasting notes...and for good reason, there have only been four vintages since the beginnings of the estate. These few liters are the result of fully botrytised grapes, picked in seven passages in the vineyards and pressed drop by drop in our small wooden press. But it was worth it when you taste the result and your nostrils revel in lime, passion fruit, Earl Gray tea with bergamot...this is a real nose of roasted grain, pure botrytis. It is a meditation wine with an unlimited lifespan and to be drunk without moderation thanks to its 3.5 degrees of alcohol…but in moderation because of the 54 liters offered by nature!

Serving temperature: 8°C

Ageing: 20 years
