Dézaley Grand Cru AOC

Located entirely within the commune of Puidoux, in the UNESCO-listed Lavaux vineyards, the appellation d’origine contrôlée Dézaley Grand Cru is characterised by its breathtakingly steep vineyard terraces and its sunshine-steeped wines - mostly white.

Dating back to the 12th century, Dézaley is the oldest cultivated parcel of the UNESCO-listed Lavaux vineyards. Not surprising then that vestiges of the Middle Ages can be found here, like the Tour de Marsens. But Dézaley’s most impressive feature is its gradient, up to 100% in places! To cultivate such steep land required man-made stone wall terraces to be built.

But Dézaley’s gradient does have its advantages in that its grapes are blessed with the ideal amount of sunshine making them more structured and rich in sugar. Planted mostly with Chasselas, this grape variety produces a generous wine which is only fully revealed after two to three years.

With cultural tours, tastings and a walk with views over Lake Geneva, Dézaley is a must for wine tourism holidays.
