Chasslie

My wine of the month for July. A 2005 Gutedel from the Ehrenstetter Oelberg site situated about 15 km south of Freiburg. Very yeasty on the nose owing to the fact that the wine was left on the lees for a prolonged period after fermentation. Hence the name Chasslie - a play on the Swiss name for Gutedel ("Chasselas") and the French term sur lie, meaning "on the lees". Clever, eh?

Hello Rickard,

Thanks for your comments.
Yes, you can order this particular wine, for example, online via the vintner in question. Here's the link:
http://www.weinkeller-ehrenkirchen.de

Select "Online-Shop" from the menu on the left, click on "Gutedel - trocken", then scroll down to view the wine I described.
