Wow. Just an absolute explosion of apple and pineapple and very bright acid. Beautiful expressive altesse!

Rich and ripe nose, with apricot, sweet pear, and herbal notes. Quite fresh palate, with grapefruit, melon, and a good creamy texture. Unusual and quite tasty. 2013

Second Altesse in a row, now a dry version from Bugey, a neighbouring AOC to Savoie.
Apple, tomato ketchup and pineapple, med body with great acidity. Apple and tomato juice diluted with liquid quartz. Long cooked apples with cream aftertaste with light hints of oxidation. This, I can sip the whole day. Unfortunately my stomach will eventually rebel because of the acidity.
