A hankering for steep mountain slopes, proper powdery snow, inelegant skiing and hearty cheese-filled meals has inspired this week’s wine box!
We’re taking you to new heights this week to the Haute-Savoie in the French Alps, perhaps better known for the glitzy ski resorts of Chamonix and Morzine. Less well known are its wines, but exceptional all the same. In L’Atitude we are fascinated by the influence that altitude has on vines and also how traditional winemaking seems to be preserved better the higher up you go. We can’t get enough of these fresh, lively wines with their distinctly ‘mountainous’ flavour profile. Not to mention the fact that they pair so well with the myriad of decadent cheese-based dishes you find whereever green pastures meet snow-capped peaks.
This is why we have chosen Savoie Frangy as this week’s destination – god knows we all need a little comfort food right now! Our wine this week is Cru Frangy Roussette de Savoie by Bruno Lupin – a reference point for exceptional white wine in the Savoie.
As usual our tastes will be selected to highlight the wine’s unique flavours- and let’s just say cheese might feature quite prominently!
Box costs €50 for 2 people. Orders via email to email@example.com or via Instgram or Facebook by midday Thursday. Collection on Fri 26th between 5 and 6.30pm
