Louis Magnin: Roussette de Savoie 2017

Grape variety Altesse from the year of 2017 (tricky and cold start of the year with late harvest but at high quality). Around 3,450 were produced.

Louis Magnin operates with great care both in the vineyard and in the winery; minimises additives and since 2012 certified for organic farming in France*. Biodynamic principles are followed for the most part, too, but without formal certification.

* Note that even though Louis Magnin is certified organic in France, the wines are not marketed as organic (“ekologiska”) in Sweden as Souplesse Wines have not yet applied for distributional certification.
