Wine Region: Savoie - France
Tasting notes: Flinty, almost smoky nose with sweet spices aromas, this is deep and rich with savoury flavours. On the palate, the wine is well-structured, sophisticated, intense, perfectly balanced, and above all, extremely refined and pure. It is, moreover, a wine of remarkable persistence and a certain salinity. This cuvée is probably one of the best expressions of Altesse around. A must-try.
About the winery:
Domaine des Ardoisieres was created in 1998 by the iconic Michel Grisard. Brice Ormont joined the team in 2005 and took it over five years later. The vineyard was planted on steep slopes (up to 60%) only with local grape varieties. This biodynamic vineyard is run with passion and respect of the living world.
