Chasselas appeared in Switzerland somewhere around the 18th century and has made its
mark on the Swiss wine drinking culture. It is the most popular white grape grown in
French speaking Switzerland, and can match perfectly with different kinds of seafood,
such as oyster and salmon. It will also pair with cheese. The aroma consists of lemon,
mango, pineapple, and tropical fruit, and the taste is mineral, slightly sweet, and smooth.
Swiss wine is a limited export product, comprising about 5% of the total production.
