2009 Domaine Jean Vullien et Fils Roussette de Savoie

SKU #1055496

The wonderful and very distinct wines of the Savoie are finally getting the attention they deserve. You might not have heard of this producer or the grape (100% Altesse), but you will be blown away by this wine's acidity, structure and depth. Two vintages ago, this is what Parker's Wine Advocate had to say about this fascinating white: "A pungent nose of orange zest, buckwheat, nutmeg, and toasted hazelnuts leads to a subtly oily yet juicy and refreshing palate. Bright notes of lemon, citrus zest, chalk, and salt add invigoration to the lightly-toasted nut and grain and moderately ripe pit fruit flavors in the finish. Over the next couple of years, this will take on a lightly oxidized, flor-like patina, typical for the Altesse (a.k.a. Roussette) grape, but remain interesting and versatile." (08/08)

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
