2008 Roussette de Savoie

2008 Domaine de L'Idylle L'Altesse, AC Roussette de Savoie

Right, so I'm reminded this is a wine blog, first and foremost. A completely new wine region to me - I've never experienced a wine of Savoie. Roussette is the name of the grape, also known as altesse.

A bit disappointed. Certainly drinkable, but a bit sharp, a bit uninspired. Lean wine is fine and all, until it makes you pucker.
