From: Savoie, France
The village of Frangy lies in the valley of a river called Les Usses, and its vineyards are known as one of the four recognized crus within the Roussette de Savoie AOC. Frangy is predominantly planted with an indigenous grape varietal called Altesse that ripens slowly and resists rot well. Altesse is also known as Roussette, which translates to “highness” in English: an ode to the grape’s nobility.
Tasting Notes: A vibrant pale golden in color. Look for spicy gingerbread aromas with hints of green apple. On the palate, creamy in texture with notes of nougat allied to yeasty flavors from the lees. Would suit any French Chardonnay lover.
“The wine has a vibrant pale golden color. It offers a wonderful nose of bergamot, honeysuckle, spicy gingerbread and hints of green apple. The palate exhibits a zippy freshness and flavors of nougat and yeasty lees supported by all the Alpine minerality you would expect from fruit grown in stony soils in the Alps.” –Dirk Smits for GAYOT
Planted on crumbly calcareous clay soils.
Pairing: The winemaker’s sister runs a country inn right next to the Domaine Lupin winery that reportedly serves an incredible fondue. We can't think of a better pairing!
