Domaine Blaise Duboux
Home to some of the most spectacular vineyard locations on the planet, the northern shores of Lake Geneva in Switzerland, produce the single greatest expressions of Chasselas (Fendant). One of its finest exponents, is the charismatic and talented Blaise Duboux. Situated in the village of Epesses, the Duboux family have been cultivating vines in the Lavaux for 500 years. Blaise represents the 17th generation, with 4.5 ha of vineyards, which he works organically. Due to the proximity of his neighbours’ vineyards, it would be impossible to be fully biodynamic, but Blaise does follow certain principals, such as working by the moon and has a strong belief in sustainable agriculture. The wines here possess a pristine purity with a lovely focus of minerality, balanced by the delicately aromatic expression of the Chasselas. These are serious and refined wines, with a refreshing and elegant balance.
