Fendant Coteaux de Plamont Chappaz, Biodynamic wine, single vineyard, dry, medium bodied, elegant, long length.  There is a slight bitterness to the wine but with added depth and richness which makes it very gastronomic. Located above the Claives parcel, the Plamont hillside is a much softer slope from whence the name “le Mont Plat” (flat mountain in English) is derived.  The vineyard lies at 650 metres above sea level.  The rich loess on granite terroir gives minerality to the wine. Fendant Plamont is quite a full bodied wine with beautiful minerality and a drier finish than the Fendant Liaudisaz from lower down.  The granite terroir brings a certain verticality and precision of acidity and tension. With citrus, citrus zest, peach and apricot notes, this wine takes time to fully express itself so will mature very well over the next 5-6 years.  A Perch fillet would be its ideal companion or a slightly spicy Thai dish.  Open it and decant a few hours before serving.

Domaine Marie Therese Chappaz, lies on the south facing slopes of the beautiful Valais region of Switzerland just above the town of Fully.

Wine production in the region dates back to the 2nd century BC and the vines carpet the lower slopes of the high mountains, up to over 1000 metres.  The climate is hot in summer and bitterly cold in winter.  There are over 300 days of sunshine per year. The mountains provide a diverse terroir including loess, granite, alluvial, clay and limestone. There are a multitude of grapes from the well known Gamay and Pinot Noir to lesser known Cornalin and Petite Arvine. These conditions and such diversity make for a wide range of wine styles and exciting flavours.

Marie Therese Chappaz took over her family estate when it was just 1.5 hectares back in the mid 80s.  She has worked using biodynamic farming for over 20 years. She has built a reputation for elegant yet full bodied wines with depth and style which age very well. Her passion and commitment to quality have earned her international recognition.  In 2016, her estate was listed in the Gault Millau guide as one of the best 100 wineries in the world.

Today she farms 11 hectares of vines on the slopes above her house in Fully and in nearby villages, Charrat, Leytron and Chamoson.  Five of the vineyards are only reachable on foot or in a small cable car. Now on her 34th vintage, Marie Therese Chappaz continues to produce over twenty different Cuvee of world class wine.  Her wines are highly sort after all over Switzerland and around the world.
