"This is a dry white wine from a blend of Sauvignon and Roussanne. As much as Roussanne is common in the north Rhone and in Savoie (there under the name of Bergeron), cultivating Sauvignon Blanc is unheard of, hence the name of the wine – le culotté, which means “cheeky”. Antoine told us the many struggles he faced with the administration to be able to grow and produce wine from this variety in this area. Harvested by hand, the wine is unfined and unfiltered, vinified and aged on lees in stainless steel tanks for six months." - Roland Benedetti, owner of Living Wine
The color is a glimmering yellow with flashes of green. The nose is fragrant, with ripe pear and yellow apple supporting softer, loose smells of moss, mountain air, and green tea. The palate is rather spicy, with a zip of green pepper, salt, and milled white pepper, before gaining weight on the finish and showing flavors of roasted orchard fruits. The wine has engaging, crunchy minerality and great acidity. David Hatzopoulos
