Sun afternoon at home. Honey nose with hint of stone fruits. Full bodied. Quite plush and succulent. Slightly sweet. Charming.

Altesse can certainly be seen as the 'more serious' white variety within Savoie, and here demonstrates the variety's affinity for textural yet crisp and fresh expressions. Fuller bodied than Jacquère, but without an oak artifact. Ripe stone fruits, light tropical touches with a smokey note.
