Appellation PDO Roussette de Savoie

Photo démo

CHARACTER : Crisp* and fruity

VARIETY : Altesse

This particular appellation, which encompasses around 50 hectares, owes its qualities to Altesse grapes. It is one of Savoy?s leading wines in terms of maturing ability. It can be enjoyed 2 years after the harvest, and can be kept for around 10 years. Four French communes are authorised to use the PDO label. These are Frangy with its dry, apricot-scented wines, Marestel with its full-bodied*, passion fruit-scented wines, Monterminod with its grapefruit aromas and fruity character, and Monthoux, whose full-bodied wines seem infused with guava. These exceptionally delicate white wines are delicious with strong lake or seawater fish.

*Crisp: light and fresh.
*Full-bodied: pleasantly sweet, smooth and ample.
