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.
