Parentage of the grape: Unknown

History of the grape: Marsanne is native to the northern Rhone valley in France. There, it was the traditional blending partner of Roussanne, but has slowly been taking over because of its greater reliability. It is becoming the primary variety in appellations such as St-Joseph, St-Peray, and Crozes-Hermitage. The role of Roussanne had been to bring acidity to the blend, since Marsanne can be flabby, but when grown in the right place, picked at the right time, and not overcropped, Marsanne can produce balanced wines. This variety also produces excellent wines in Switzerland and in nearby Savoie, where it is known as Grosse Roussette. Marsanne is used in blends throughout the Languedoc, but is not one of the varieties Read more »

    Snoothrank:

    Nice silky nose of delicate citrus and some floral hints. A tad bit of red grapefruit. On the palate, dried pineapple, white peach, honeysuckle and a hint of almond. It's a tad steely up front, but rounds out nicely.- Tasted at Marché Bacchus 5/29/10 Read More

  • Treana Proprietary White United States California Central Coast Red 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A light wine which still manages to drip with the taste of honey and pineapple. Even so, this outstanding effort is not to sweet and nicely balanced with just the right acidic addition. For those who like a white Rhone-style wine this is a very good one. 93. Read More
