This wine made from 100% of the Rhône variety Roussanne combines beautifully aromatic complexity and freshness thanks to the vineyard’s location at a higher altitude. There is balance and tension in this round, supple white, with delicate white flower, pear and citrus aromas underpinned by intriguing minerality.
The young Swiss winemaker of Domaine Malmont devotes particular attention to detail in his methodical approach to vineyard management and wine-making, privileging freshness and expression in his wines over power. His 4 hectares of vines on steep terraces on the Malmont mountain are located at an altitude between 300 and 360m, ensuring freshness in the wine. While not certified organic, the same meticulous approach is devoted to maximize environmental sustainability.
Serving suggestions: A fantastic pairing with creamy seafood dishes, vegetable risotto, as well as red or green Thai curries, Hong Kong-style roasted chicken and … Singapore chilli crab.
