  • Alpine Wines Grape Varieties: Altesse

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.
