I had drunk this wine frequently 30 years ago when I had previously lived in Switzerland. At that time it was clearly one of the better Fendants available. It is still good, but the Valais Fendant global situation has vastly improved, thus the competition is really tough and my ratting reflects that fact. You can find clearly better ones but their costs are 25% or much more than this one. For an everyday Fendant it is perfectly adequate. For a special occasion I'd go up a notch in both the cost and quality.
Valais AOC Fendant Dame de Sion
This product is currently not available.
Les Fils de Charles Favre
Goes well with
Appetizers, fondue raclette
A fine bouquet with mineral notes and slight hints of yeast, in the mouth, fresh with plenty of carbonic acid and sharpness, a strong fruity presence, nice volume and pleasantly soft at the finish.
This family estate has belonged to Charles Favre's sons since 1944. The Fendant from Valais, commonly known as Chasselas, was introduced, it seems, by General de Courten in the eighteenth century. He was the first to plant a vineyard in Sion. The main town in thecanton, has 425 hectares of vineyards, produces 61% of white wines and 39% of red wines. In addition to the traditional wine varieties, you can also find a wide variety of specialty red and white wines.

"sauberer Wein", war früher mein Lieblingswein. Unterdessen mit fortgeschrittenem Alter bevorzuge ich herbere Weine,
beau fendant - Fendant vif, fruité avec une belle fraîcheur et une longueur correcte.
Bien, manque de pétillant.
Fein lieblich, eher stark
Top avec une fondue ou une raclette.
