Lutte raisonnée – hand-harvested – 100% Roussette
Domaine Bruno Lupin
The Roussette de Savoie AOC is known for its dry white wines, produced predominantly from the Altesse grape variety, locally referred to as Roussette. Award-winning winemaker Bruno Lupin’s domaine is located in Frangy, acknowledged as one of the best crus in this up-and-coming region. As with many of the producers in this region, Bruno follows the ‘lutte raisonnée’ method of viticulture. This involves the minimal use of chemicals, low yields and the hand harvesting of all grapes.
Pick of his cuvées is arguably the ‘Frangy’. From 100% Roussette, it displays pear, gingerbread, spice and honey notes with a hint of nougat. The mouthfeel is soft, mellow and off-dry with a fabulous spike of acidity. A perfect partner to river fish such as pike or perch.
