Roussette de Savoie Giachino, Biodynamic wine, 100% Roussette also called Altesse.  Pure, elegant, mineral, stunning white wine.  Roussette is the local variety in this area which is also called Altesse. Domaine Giachino make a delicious organic and natural example of this wine. The style is elegant yet with underlying fullness in the mouth, a nuttiness comes through nicely and the wine goes superb with mountain food like dumplings made with speck or the local sausage called ‘Diots de Savoie’ with Crozets, a little buckwheat pasta with cheese. Roussette de Savoie is a really beautiful wine from a lesser known grape that is well worth trying.

Domaine Giachino was created in 1998 when Frédéric took over the 1,5 hectares family estate from his grandfather Marius Genton.

Later joined by his brother David, they progressively enlarged the estate to 9 hectares and enriched their vineyards with new grape varieties particular to their area of the Savoie. Their values and philosophy made a switch to natural and organic methods inevitable and this they did in 2006. The vineyards of Domaine Giachino are in Savoie, not far from Chambéry, on the hillsides of Mont Granier. The soils are moraine, clay and limestone; a specific geology to the area and source of the uniqueness of their delicious organic wines.
