Extremely subtle and clean Altesse from Savoie. Crisp golden apple, subtle notes of honey, very clean.

Céline Jacquet is one of the new “Young Lions” of the Savoie, young vignerons aged 24-35 who are together transforming Savoie into a wine region worthy of serious consideration. Her vineyards are planted in stony, clay-limstone soil on the mountainous alpine slopes. With southeastern exposition, abundant sunlight, plentiful rainfall, and naturally good drainage, her vines produce phenolically ripefruit and balanced wines that gainsay the conventional criticism of Savoie wines as insipid.
