Fendant des Copains Marie Therese Chappaz 2017, Biodynamic wine, dry, medium bodied, elegant, long length. 2017 was a tough vintage for the Fendant (Chasselas) and Marie Therese lost a lot of fruit to frost. To make this wine, she bought some fruit from a nearby friend who also uses biodynamics and called the wine, Fendant des Copains, 'Friends Fendant'. The wine is very friendly, charming and beguiling and yet so simple to enjoy. Notes of terroir, a touch of smoke, dried herbs and orange peel assail the nose and lead to a round palate with energy and acidity, fruit and a slightly bitter finish. For a stunningly moreish aperitif, or with a light lunch of sauteed mushrooms or just some gruyere drizzled with honey.
