Autrement Vin de Savoie Altesse 2013

Altesse at its best really.
Definitely slightly oxydated, but for the best. Apricots and Honey are knocking at the door, minerality is here, and yes, fresh fresh fresh... only reminds me some Bergeron that aged more than anyone expected. Bravo Jacques Maillet!

Cuvée du Pépé Roussette de Savoie Frangy Altesse 2012

JKT
9.1

CVed 10/11/17. Acker11. White flowers and nuts and blast of acids on nose. Palate of minerals and acids and almonds and hints of surprising fruit sweetness just beneath the tension and long finish. Energy! Mouth puckering acidity. Great food wine. First taste of Altesse. Vieilles Vignes. Need to compare with Brondien. — 5 years ago

Domaine des Orchis (Philippe Héritier)

Quintessence d'Altesse Roussette de Savoie 2018

Wow. A great example of what it is.

Nose is mountain flowers with a kiss of mountain flower honey. The honey is not really perceptible. It adds depth. So fresh. As this opens the floral ty is just gorgeous.

Palate is gorgeous. Perfect balance. Fruit is like liquid flowers almost. Fruity but I can’t place the fruit. Quince? Like really well made 1e cru Chablis but mountainy. Very delicious but so pure. Julie Andrews in sound of music. A hint of minerality.

If this had more palate complexity it would rush into the elite category. For a “simple wine” this is as good as it gets.

Amazing change of pace wine.

Bought from fass selections.

So singular. Truly singular wine. Acid is nuts as well.

Domaine Saint-Germain

Roussette de Savoie Altesse

I love a strong white. Very deep straw color, light nutty cheese notes, helped cut through and temper the sweetbreads it was paired with. — 4 years ago
