Altesse

Where and How?

This is a varietal example of the indigenous white grape variety of the Savoie, Altesse.
After being hand harvested, the grapes made the short trip to the winery where they were pressed directly (classic white wine style). Then, the juice fermented naturally and was aged for nine months in concrete to preserve its fresh aromas.

The Winemaker: Domaine Curtet

“Working our vineyards on foot as we do is not easy. The slopes are steep… We climb the equivalent of Mont Blanc every single week,” Marie explains, shrugging simply, as she holds a cup of coffee in one hand, her other arm wrapped affectionately around her little girl, Lily, her little blonde head nestled into her mother’s shoulder.
Florian emerges from his afternoon nap, hair tousled. He’s been up since 4am, as he is every single day of the growing season leading up to harvest. He smiles and yawns, stretches, reaches out for Lily. They both look like human gazelles, so honed, slim and muscular. Then again — we’d all look like that if we climbed almost 5,000 metres every single week, wouldn’t we?
