Altesse is the finest indigenous grape in Savoie and the only permitted grape in AOC Roussette de Savoie. A vibrant wine with aromas of alpine herbs, pine and lemon zest. Elegant and crisp on the palate, with mouth watering acidity and flinty minerality. A perfect aperitif.
Chevallier Bernard is based in the commune of Jongieux, a lesser known village in Savoie. Roussette de Savoie, also known as Altesse, is considered the finest white grape in Savoie. The wine is soft and aromatic, with aromas of peach blossom, citrus peels, and orchard fruit.
Golden yellow in colour, clean and bright. This is a supremely elegant, complex white that has enticing floral , citrus and toasted nut aromas. Very good acidity and a delicate mouth feel. Fruity finish with persistent freshness. Ideal with Spanish dishes such as paella and seafood.
