Cru Fangy Rousette de Savoie Lupin, not a name that is going to resonate with many UK wine drinkers, but why not, this is fine white from the hills. The cake sounding 'Frangy' part of this name refers to the village from whence it came, one of 16 villages in the Savoie given cru staus under the AOC. Not that it means a great deal as we know appellations don't really but it is an interesting fact about this relatively obscure wine. The natural environment and cold winter temperatures make more natural production the norm in these climes and at Domain Lupin, they adopt a lutte raisonnee approach (Minimal use of chemicals, hand harvested, low yields of around 49hl/ha). The Rousette or Altesse variety can make exceptional wine and at this very modest price, this glass is very enjoyable indeed. The flavours are reminiscent of pear, gingerbread, spice and honey with a touch of nougat and the mouthfeel is soft, mellow and off dry. This would be splendid with river fish such as pike or perch, or veal escalope, or even the local Beaufort cheese, a cheese i know well as Beaufort is where we head to Ski once a year. I can highly recommend it and certainly try the local wines, they are delicious!
