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

Weigth: 4W

Varietal: Altesse

Region: Bugey, Rhone Valley, France

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.
