ALTESSE DE MONTAGNIEU
 
 

Soil
While the formation of the French Prealps and the Ice Age have created a very heterogeneous chaotic soil in the Bugey region, the Montagnieu soil on the other hand is very homogeneous. It is characterised by a very calcareous white clay soil full of ammonites and other fossilised sea molluscs. IT IS THESE GEOLOGICAL CHARACTERISTICS AND THE SYMBIOSIS OF THIS NATIVE GRAPE VARIETY THAT HAVE MADE THE REPUTATION OF MONTAGNIEU'S WINES.

Grape variety
Two names for the same grape variety: Altesse and Roussette.

Vinification
After a rigorous selection during harvesting, the pressing may be preceded by a few hours of cold maceration. Low-temperature fermentation in vats, followed by early under-drawing to keep the last residual sugars. In short, complete respect for this grape variety's vinification. We carry out all the wine making, ageing and bottling ourselves.



Characteristics
Its pale gold highlights are the prelude to mineral and floral aromas. Young, its freshness offers a pure and harmonious mouth. After keeping a few years it reveals aromas of honey and bee wax.

Serve with:
Aperitifs, foie gras, goat's cheese
