Review DUPASQUIER ALTESSE 'ROUSSETTE DE SAVOIE' 2012
DUPASQUIER ALTESSE 'ROUSSETTE DE SAVOIE' 2012
"David Dupasquier is a vigneron working his fields responsibly (no treatments besides Bordeaux mixture, plowing exclusively), treating his wines with care (ambient yeast fermentation and no chemical intervention outside of sulfur at bottling), and turning out honest, terroir driven wines of exceptional quality for an exceptional value. David grows his vines according to the terroir of the region, not according to fashionable dictates. When we asked about the mixture of varieties in his vineyards (Altesse, Pinot Noir, Mondeuse, Jacquère, Gamay) we were simply told that, "The soils are calcareous clay with veins of other soil types, and quite different types of exposures because our vineyard is in an arc; the varieties are planted to the soil type and exposure that suits them best."
