The opinion of the sommelier
« I’ve traveled a lot in Savoy these days, and I really wanted to find a nice roussette to taste, and I found this beautiful cuvée of Philippe Grisard. The roussette is a white grape variety very interesting for wine tasting because it has a nice acidity, a floral bouquet, and tannins, that is rare for white wines. »
The roussette, also called “goddess”, is one of the rare white grape varieties where we can feel the tannins. Wines produced from this grape have a fine acidity that reminds mountains’ freshness. They have a medium keeping potential (4 to 5 years).
Fine greenish gold colours with light green reflec- tions. The disk is thin, shiny and limpid.
Nose is intense, amusing. Flowers' flavours dominate the aromatic palette, followed by notes of acacia trees, sweet spices and honey.
Taste is round - that means without roughtness (we feel like making the wine moving in our mouth) - supple and fresh. It's very well balanced.
Service : between 10 et 12°C. Open just before serving. Keeping potential until 2018.

Selected among the 10 winemakers of the year by Bettane and Desseauve in 2000, Philippe Grisard is a solid value in Savoy. He is well-known in the entire region for his vineyards growing talents: Indeed he makes the seeds for many wineries in Savoy.
The Domaine Grisard extends for 15 hectares in the Combe de Savoie, between Chambéry and Albertville. Vineyards are located on mountains slopes in the natural park of Bauges. The muddy limestone slopes have draining capacity. This helps the production of wine with a high acidity level.
