Haut Alpes (or “Upper Alps”) lies between the Savoie region to the north and the Mediterranean coast of Provence to the south, situated high up in the Alps mountain range that France shares with seven other countries. A breathtakingly spectacular part of the world, it’s home to valleys lined with apple and pear trees, picturesque houses built on steep hills, and sees the Tour de France pass by its mountains nearly every year.
However, a tiny bit of land up here is also home to vineyards, where a handful of producers make fantastic wines that are mostly enjoyed by either the locals or visitors to the nearby alpine ski resorts. Lot 720 is a beauty that comes to us from vineyard slopes planted about 2000 feet above sea level, and is crafted with Grenache, Cinsault, and Syrah grapes. A true needle-in-a-haystack find.
