From a vineyard located along Lake Geneva, this bright, lithe white makes a terrific aperitif on a muggy August evening.
What You Need To Know
Château de Ripaille's 54 acres of vineyards are planted entirely to Chasselas, a white grape variety that's found in wildly different incarnations (dry, sweet and even sparkling wines) all over the world. But its home turf is in the foothills of the Western Alps, where Swiss and French versions of crisp, fruity Chasselas-based whites abound. Château de Ripaille winemaker Paule Necker, whose family purchased the estate's turreted castle and vineyards in 1892, crafts delicate Chasselas whites that get a distinctive chalkiness from stony limestone soils.
