What a nose. Persimmon, melon, ripe and balanced, so pure and so clean, not crazy acid but it’s so balanced it doesn’t matter: so pure.

2013 Gilles Berlioz Roussette de Savoie (Altesse). Huge nose. Yellow fruits. Honeyed. Deep and very expressive aromas. Wonderful texture. Fat and concentrated. Lovely acidity on the edges of the round flavors. So pure as that is the theme here.

Overripe melon and a touch of honey with the most subtle touch of lanolin. Wet rock mineralogy and a mouthfeel that widens and softens after an initial art zing. Reminiscent of good dry Loire Chenin.

it's not an altesse, it's a mondeuse...and it's delicious!!! dry as savoie can be, but beside the chalky texture, it's balanced and nice forest fruits
