Domaine Vendange Madame de M... Roussette de Savoie Altesse 2019

A rich, aromatic and textured wine with floral blossom,
spice and flint layered with elegant notes of quince and
ripe pineapple culminating in a mineral and saline finish.
Producer Note
Owners Diane and Benjamin began bottling their own wines in 2015, from vineyards
that have been in the family for generations. Their 10-hectares of vines flourish on south
facing slopes in Combe de Savoie, on the foothills of the Massif des Bauges. The estate
is located on glacial moraines dating back 15,000 years, originating from the time
when the valley was one large glacier. The vineyard is managed with great respect for
tradition and terroir, using sustainable practices in order to gain the best and most
authentic expression of the Savoie. The combination of rich soils and favourable
climate, provide Domaine de Vendange with excellent conditions for their vine nursery.
The production process has been mastered throughout the generations, and they sell
a vast range of scions and rootstocks throughout France.
Vineyard
The Domaine de Vendange estate extends over 10 hectares, planted on south facing
slopes where the local Savoie grape varieties fully express their typicity. The 20-year old
Altesse vines yield 55 hectolitres per hectare. The soils are formed of glacial moraine;
they are very young limestone soils made up of limestone scree, with layers of silty clay,
which produce elegant, fresh wines. The vines are planted at 400 metres’ elevation, yet
despite the altitude and mountainous location, the summers are surprisingly hot. This
distinctive microclimate encourages the grapes to reach optimum maturity with
concentrated juice, balanced by mountain-cool freshness. The vines are cultivated
using integrated agriculture practices, maintaining the greatest respect for terroir and
tradition. The focus is on green harvesting with pruning, debudding, trellising and leaf
stripping. All grapes are hand-harvested. In 2021, the domain moved into conversion to
organic status.
Winemaking
The grapes were gently pressed at a low pressure to retain the quality and the must
was cold settled overnight. The juice was fed by gravity and fermented with natural
yeasts in stainless steel tanks to retain the varietal characteristics and the nuances of
the Savoie terroir. Temperatures were carefully maintained at 18°C and the vinification
lasted for a month. Malolactic conversion naturally took place during the winter.
Vinified with a minimal intervention approach, the use of sulphites was judicious. 95% of
the wine was aged in stainless steel tanks on its fine lees for over 12 months and 5% was
matured in three-year old Burgundy barrels.
Tasting Note
With a brioche opening, complex aromas of floral blossom, spice and flinty notes
surround a core of pear and citrus. Intense and precise, the textured palate is lively,
balanced and underpinned by elegant mineral notes.
