Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and light
With its light yellow color, this wine offers a discreet nose with notes of citrus and white flowers. On the palate, it presents a sweet attack with a hint of sweetness. Short final on citrus fruits.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
The story of the origin of the Altesse variety says that it is native to the island of Cyprus and that it would have been reported in the 14th century by Anne de Lusignan, daughter of the King of Cyprus, who married a Duke of Savoy
Domain and appellation
Domaine Edmond Jacquin Et Fils
Winegrowers from father to son, the JACQUIN family dedicates a large part of its vineyard to the ROUSSETTE.
- Terroir: La Roussette is cultivated on clayey-limestone slopes sheltered from the mountains and facing due west.
- Vinification: It is with the greatest respect for traditions and, as naturally as possible, that vinification is carried out with wines from exceptionally exposed plots. The grapes are picked manually and carefully selected.
