Roussette de Savoie 2014 - "Altesse", Domaine Jean Vullien

The opinion of the sommelier

Do you know the Roussette de Savoie? For the last few years, I have been spending the winters in Chamonix, in the Savoie region.Thus, Roussette is a grape variety that I drink and enjoy almost every week. I thought it would be nice to choose for once a wine from the mountains so as to discover the aromas of this widely unknown terroir that is Savoie. I hope you will enjoy the flavours of honeysuckle and honey. It is the perfect wine for a raclette party or a crème brulée 

 

Terroir

The terroir of the mountains give very specific wines. Indeed, in order to find its nutrients through the rocks, the vine has to grow very long roots. Moreover, the Roussette vines are grown in a very windy area. The consequence is that the grapes grown there have a lot of freshness to offer.

lecepage Grape variety

In French, “Altesse” means “Highness”. This grape variety was brought back to France by the Dukes of Savoie. At the beginning, only the aristocracy was allowed to drink wines made from this grape variety. Now, France is a Republic, and the variety is called “Roussette de Savoie”. It gives dry white wines, with very powerful aromas of fresh white flowers and citrus fruits.

lemillesime Vintage

The 2014 vintage was just bottled a few months ago, and yet, it already has a lot to offer. In the Savoie region, everyone is already speaking about this exceptional vintage with extremely powerful aromas of fresh fruits. The very good news is that the 2014 vintage was not only a blessing regarding the quality of the wine, but also regarding the quantity as the harvest was very abundant. 

lerecoltantA winemaker, a family

In the Savoie region, winemaking is often a family business. The Vulliens are no exception to this rule. Indeed, Jean Vullien, who created the estate, was himself son and grandson of winemakers. He is proud to carry on the tradition. And he shares his pride with his wife Jeanine, and his two sons David and Olivier who also work at the estate.
