Roussette de Savoie 2012 - Domaine Grisard

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 cuvee 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. »
 

Terroir

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.

lecepage Grape Variety

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).

lemillesime Vintage

The vintage effect is less marked in Savoy than in other French wine-making regions. With low productivity (number of grapes per wine plant) and a very high juice concentration, 2012 produced wines with a nice equilibrium between acidity and fruits.

lerecoltant Winemaker

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.
