Adrien Berlioz, Roussette De Savoie, Zulime 2019 - 0,75L
Altesse is a Savoyard grape variety which gives here a cuvée with fine floral notes. In the mouth, the attack is lively. A wine full of greediness balanced between freshness and minerality. A delightful wine.
Adrien Berlioz, cousin of Gilles Berlioz (Domaine Partagé) settled in 2006 in Chignin, Savoie, where he founded the Cellier des Cray. The first years, he cultivates the vines he inherited from his family. Then the vineyard extends to make today 5,5 hectares, composed of 13 plots.
The Savoyard grape varieties (mondeuse, persan, douce noire, bergeron jacquère, altesse and malvoisie) are cultivated on clay-limestone soils and the slopes can reach 50%. Hand work is greatly favored in this estate certified in Organic and Biodynamic Agriculture since 2012.
In the cellars, human intervention is minimized: action of indigenous yeasts, harvest more or less destemmed, maturing in demi-muids from Ganevat, little sulfites.
The wines of the Cellier des Cray are pure and elegant. Great wines of Savoy!
