What does one want to drink high up in the mountains? The Altesse, or either wise known as Roussette de Savoie, is probably one of those wines with its addictive fresh honeyed and multi-layered nose.
The Dupasquier's have been farming this wine quietly now for generations making it in an honest traditional style. It's got crazy flexibility in pairing options being very much at home next to a fondue set as it is to a South Indian Thaili.
