Domaine Dupasquier

Marestel Roussette de Savoie Altesse 2006

A pale to mid gold in colour. Some stone fruit, quince and honeyed notes. Oxidative and keeps changing - ripe mandarin notes on nose and palate. A real chameleon of a wine. Like a not so sweet detuned Sauternes. A first for me with the Altesse grape, Roussette is the style - also have not had many wines from the Savoie district. Medium to full bodied palate weight. At 16 years it is ready to drink but retains some cleansing acidity - not blowsy at all. The following day Apricot notes. A little skinnsy bitterness at the finish. Initially stainless steel and then native yeast used in used oak barrels. One of the 1001 wines. In the book it says that Noel Dupasquier’s vines are up to 100 years old and he picks late when the grapes are over ripe often with noble rot. — 5 months ago

Thanks Peter. It was certainly a different wine tasting experience. One of the reasons I like the book “1001 Wines to drink before you Die” to dig out gems like this.

So lovely - I am such an Altesse fanboy. Lemon, Bosc pear, straw, wet river rock, minerals, great acidity, great weight, great balance. Drinking great right now. — 4 months ago
