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 2023


Varietal : Chasselas

Vineyard of origin : Fully La Liaudisaz

Panier vers Boutique

Description: Made from chasselas vines planted on several granite terroirs between Fully and Martigny, this Fendant is aged in vats, on lees, for approximately 8 months. The first nose evokes honeysuckle and warm stone. These first impressions then give way to a pretty aniseed note. The mouth is salivating with an ample and carnal attack which extends over discreet flavors of white fruit. It is a wine which will undoubtedly whet the appetite as an aperitif.

Serving temperature: 6-8°C

Ageing: up to 5 years

 

Fendant Coteaux de Plamont 2023


Varietal : Chasselas

Vineyard of origin : Fully Plamont

Panier vers Boutique

Description: It is at almost 600 meters of altitude, on a unique plot at the top of Les Claives that our Chasselas vines are cultivated which make up this Fendant, also aged in vats, on lees, for 8 months. The granite terroir of this plot gives it minerality and tension. Acacia flower and pear are expressed on the nose and a few seconds later, slightly brioche notes appear. The mouthfeel is long and saline. It is a “gastronomic” Fendant which will accompany the noble fish of the lake; it is also a Fendant that can be “forgotten” in the cellar for a few years.

Serving temperature: 6-8°C

Ageing: up to 5 years

 

Fendant élevage 18 mois en demi-muid 2023


Varietal : Chasselas

Vineyard of origin : Fully Plamont

Panier vers Boutique

Description: also produced on our granite terroirs, this Fendant has benefited from long aging, on total lees, in this container of almost 600 liters, ideal for this type of aging. Suffice it to say that this is a Fendant that goes off the beaten track with intense freshness despite the sunny vintage. The nose evokes verbena, a “fatty ham” side with a few hints of lightly baked brioche on the finish. In the mouth, we can say that the length is extraordinary.

One of the perfect pairings that immediately comes to mind is an old Gruyere.

Serving temperature: 6-8°C

Ageing: up to 5 years

Ermitage

Grain Ermitage Président Troillet 2022


Varietal : Ermitage

Vineyard of origin : Fully Les Claives

Sold out

"Limited quantities"

Tasting note: “at the dawn of its 100th anniversary”: with exceptional vines…an exceptional vintage for our “old” Marsannes which will soon be a hundred years old! Among our barrels from the lot of old vines, we isolated a few to give birth to this vintage which is the very essence of these vines whose low yields give it an extraordinary density. Aging for 14 months for this sunny vintage which gives birth to a vintage with dazzling freshness. The nose of raspberry brandy intermingles with notes of candied apricots but also flower pollen. The mouth is full and very quickly the palate is lined with pretty bitters while the “retro” brings a little saline touch. Given its potential, we advise you to keep it in the cellar...but consume before 100 years!

Serving temperature: 8-10°C

Ageing: 3-50 years

White Blend

Assemblage Blanc sec Sylvaner, Marsanne et Petite Arvine 2022


Varietals : Ermitage, Petite Arvine, Sylvaner

Vineyards of origin : several different vineyard plots

Sold out

"Limited Quantities"

Tasting note: This white blend cuvée which benefits from 12 months of barrel aging is a new creation each year from the grape varieties that make it up. The 2022 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 lovely vintage. The first nose reveals lemon zest, honeysuckle with a slightly toasted note. In the mouth, the petite arvine provides its freshness and its saline side, the sylvaner its fullness and the marsanne its beautiful bitterness. It is a creative wine which leaves room for imagination, harmony and which is enhanced by the alchemy of this blend.

Serving temperature: 8°C

Ageing: 2-8 years

Rosé

Rosé des Copains 2023

Vineyards of origin : several different vineyard plots

Panier vers Boutique

Description: pinot noir and a few touches of gamay make up this 2023 vintage Rosé des Copains, a direct pressing rosé benefiting from aging on total lees in vats for 8 months.

With a pretty color, this rosé is delicious on the palate and benefits from a nice balance with a fresh mouth tinged with touches of tangy candy. The nose reveals a first note of grapefruit and small red fruits. This wine will be appreciated as an aperitif with friends or family, as well as during meals with, for example, traditional raw ham and melon.

Serving temperature: 8°C

Ageing: 4 years

Gamay

Grain Gamay Vieilles Vignes 2023


Varietal : Gamay

Vineyard of origin : Fully Les Claives

Panier vers Boutique

Description: with almost 85% whole clusters, this Grain Gamay immediately expresses these typical varietal notes that one can expect from whole cluster vinification. Cultivated on our granite terroirs near Claives, this Gamay is then aged in barrels for 8 months. The second nose evokes cranberries, cranberries but also the ashes resting in the fireplace. When young, the tannins are slightly marked by the stem but this is also and above all a great asset for the aging of this bottle.

Serving temperature: 15°C

Pinot Noir

Grain Pinot Les Dahrres 2022


Varietal : Pinot Noir

Vineyard of origin : Chamoson Les Dahrres

Sold out

Tasting note: the Les Dahrres 2022 vintage is true to itself with however a beautiful concentration that we owe in particular to the vintage effect. This wine certainly acquires a slightly greater aging potential than usual. We find the smoky side of the vintage with pretty, very fine tannins. Strawberry and wild raspberry are there while the mouth is greedy with a note of heather.

Serving temperature: 15°C

Ageing: 3 years

Grain Pinot Les Dahrres 2023


Varietal : Pinot Noir

Vineyard of origin : Chamoson Les Dahrres

Panier vers Boutique

Tasting note: head to the right bank of the Rhône to discover this pinot noir aged for 8 months in Burgundian barrels. This 2023 vintage does not detract from the now well-established style of this wine which reveals these flattering and gourmet, slightly smoky notes from the first nose. Wild strawberries and raspberries remain the hallmarks of this wine. The palate is real velvet with very fine tannins.

Serving temperature: 15°C

Ageing: 3 years

Grain Pinot Les Esserts 2022


Varietal : Pinot Noir

Vineyard of origin : Charrat Les Esserts

Sold out

Tasting note: aged for 12 months in barrels, this vintage allows us to imagine a fir forest with its carpet of needles, all enhanced with a hint of menthol for the olfactory part. There is also a very beautiful taste harmony with silky tannins.

Grain Pinot Charrat 2022


Varietal : Pinot Noir

Vineyards of origin : Charrat Champ Dury, Charrat Les Esserts

Sold out

Tasting note: The 2022 vintage of this Grain Pinot Charrat offers the quintessence of a powerful wine, full of depth with a beautiful aromatic complexity that goes from cedar to sweet wood (licorice) with a finish that evokes blackberry. The mouth is fleshy. It is a great wine which will allow its youth to be tamed or, if you have the patience, can be forgotten in the cellar.

Serving temperature: 15°C

Ageing: 1-8 years

Grain Pinot Champ Dury 2022


Varietal : Pinot Noir

Vineyard of origin : Charrat Champ Dury

Panier vers Boutique

Tasting note: it is once again the left bank of the Rhône which expresses itself with this Pinot Noir cuvée aged for almost 18 months in barrels with around 20% whole bunches. The aging was deliberately prolonged to give this wine time to express itself and magnify these notes of raspberry, cedar and mocha. The mouth is full and lively. To date, the wine is still a little closed and we advise you to wait for at least five more years in the cellar.

Serving temperature: 15°C

Description : the majority of Pinot Noir, Gamay, Syrah, Merlot and young Cabernet Franc vines make up this year's Ma Puinée cuvée. The first nose is varietal and quickly fades to reveal notes of small, tangy red fruits and spices. The Syrah provides a little “rooty” side and tension. The palate is dynamic with beautiful tannins on the finish. This is a wine to enjoy now or to forget for two or three years in the cellar.

The nose is immediately marked by the presence of black fruits such as redcurrant or even black cherry; Then light notes of sweet spices and menthol appear. The mouth is sunny and supple. It is a gourmet wine to be enjoyed now but it will also keep all its promises for years to come.

Sweet Wines

Grain Noble Petite Arvine, Marsanne, Pinot Gris - Several Vintages


Varietals : Ermitage, Petite Arvine, Pinot Gris

Vineyard of origin : Fully Les Claives

Sold out

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

Sold out

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
