Overview

Before entering Lac Léman the Rhône river flows northwest through a steep valley providing excellent sites on its north bank for the growing of grapes. Along its course are a series of villages which have the right to append their name to the wines cultivated within their borders, the most famous of which are Yvorne, Ollon, Bex and Aigle. In the village of Aigle Louis Bovard grows Chasselas on steep terraces with a southwestern exposure on gravelly limestone soils. Here the climate is cooler and more exposed than the more gentle sites in Lavaux resulting in a crisper and more linear version of Chasselas. It is fermented in foudre and aged 8-10 months before release.
