A mineral Altesse
Roussette, made from Altesse, is the more prestigious white grape of Savoie. We're in a totally different climate and terroir than our other Altesse, the Jacquin Marestel.
Full Details
The Wine


This beautiful wine made from the Altesse grape, is certainly not a frivolous wine. It has such complexity that it knocks Pinot Gris into a cocked hat. Having said that, do not consider it too serious to find totally enjoyable.

It has a clear pale lemon colour like a winter sunrise. On the nose it has pronounced flavours of honey and peach with hints of mango and pineapple, in the background, a minerality that demonstrates its Alpine origins. On the palate there is quite a difference. The flavours become supremely tropical with pineapple bursting through. Underneath that there is green apple and a hint of perfume. This wine has a splendidly long finish with warm honey and exotic tropical fruits - pineapple again but with notes of lychee and a hint of kiwifruit at the very end.

There is so much that this wine would match with - seafood risotto or any white meats. We tried it with terrine de caille aux raisins and it was magnificent.

Having said that it would be perfect just paired with a warm summer's evening.

Savouring this Savoie

Roussette de Savoie Altesse

Honeyed gold in glass, wonderful and intriguing with pear, apricot and almond with mineral saline notes. This was soft, round and rich with syrupy stone fruit yet a dry ending. Just lovely. I really liked it, but don’t take just my word for it – “can I have another glass?” from someone decidedly red-centric.
