Henri Badoux Chasselas Aigle Les Murailles 2010

Henri Badoux Chasselas Aigle Les Murailles 750ML 2010    
Sku: 15092

This wine, with its quirky Salamander label, is one of the premier wines of the Chablais, if not the entire Vaud. It is made from Chasselas grapes grown on the steeply terraced vineyards climbing the hills behind the town of Aigle and its fairytale Château. The soil is light gravel/shale, and the vineyards give full exposure to the sun. The warm dry Foehn winds maintain the microclimate which pertains right up until the harvest, ensuring ripening beyond the reach of the dampness and mists of autumn, protecting the grapes from rot.

The wine has a pale golden yellow colour, with a rich, spicy pungent nose, with hints of caramel. On the palate it is dry, predominantly mineral, yet with good fruit following. The finish is initially warming, then develops with a dry minerality and a beautiful elegant bitterness that is extremely long. A lovely wine; serve at 8-10°C on its own, or with freshwater fish or white meat dishes.
