    *4W* 2020 Franck Peillot "Altesse" (Bugey, FR)

    A rare, indigenous grape from the small town of Bugey, overlooking the Rhone Valley in southern France. Aromatically & texturally, Altesse presents much like Chenin blanc: honeycomb, white flowers, ripe white peach, and a bit of apple. Where this wine really shines is the textural complexity on the palate - think of this for your next pot luck dinner, where it will pair with all but the heaviest fare.

    About The Varietal

    Altesse

    Altesse is a white grape variety renowned for its contribution to the production of dry white wines in Savoie, located in the eastern part of France. It is considered one of the region's most esteemed grape varieties, as it yields full-bodied and concentrated wines with floral and nutty notes, along with a well-balanced acidity.
