The Savoy is more known as a ski region than a wine-growing region. On more than 2,000 hectares, vines are grown here, but most of the production is consumed locally, only a little is exported. The white grape variety Jacquère is about half the area, giving it a fresh and mineral dry white wine with a delicate floral note. Salted white wines come from the Altesse variety, here also called Roussette, which is related to the vines Syrah, Marsanne and Roussanne and even in the cool Savoyenklima creamy full white wines can produce complex and maturity. Also Chardonnay, Gutedel and Roussanne are grown to small parts and usually used in cuvees.
From top producers such as Adrien Berlioz , the wines of the Savoy can become real experiences, the wines are usually completely unknown and will surprise even wine professionals.
