Pale lemon in colour with a bouquet of citrus and peach, with subtle floral and mineral notes. Round and fruity on the palate, with a delicate 'spritz' and persistent finish.
Temperature-controlled fermentation followed by maturation in vat on the fine lees.
The Domaine is situated in the French Alps, and the wines are light and floral with a unique, refreshing mineral flavour deriving from the Domaine's south-facing vineyards. The Savoie region benefits from a very specific topography, dominated by rockfall from Mont Granier. The vine, with the help of dedicated vignerons, has gradually colonised this extraordinary terroir comprising mainly limestone and clay soils which has an exceptionally sunny climate. Roussette, with its notes of honey, hazelnuts and almonds, and Apremont ("liquefied joie de vivre" Decanter), with its slight 'spritz', are unusual and delicious and make very fine aperitifs.
