Increasingly popular in the Central Coast of California for blending purposes and as a varietal, Roussanne is a trendy, white Rhône grape. In France it is often blended with Marsanne, and is cultivated in Provence and Languedoc-Roussillon, as well as the Rhone. With inconsistent yields, poor resistance to winds, and its susceptibility to powdery mildew and rot, Roussanne had almost disappeared from the northern Rhône until superior clones were developed. Now, it is only one of two vine varieties permitted in the white versions of the northern Rhône’s red wine appellations. In the southern Rhône, it is only one of four grape varieties permitted in white Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Roussanne’s main asset is its distinctive aroma, along with an acidity which helps it to age better than its partner Marsanne. Roussanne tends to ripen late and can benefit from oak ageing.
Rousanne, you’re a beauty from southern France; deftly perfumed with strikingly angular features. You offer style and grace in Read more »

A bright, light bodied, balanced wine. Notes of apple, meyer lemon, pear, nectarine. More fresh fruit than plush soft tropical flavours here. Lots of well balanced, soft, mouth watering acidity. Medium bodied. Medium finish. Apparently this does get so...

This is very attractive on the nose with good intensity and lovely complexity that brings together rich lime, Fiji apple fruit, floral top notes and a touch of blond tobacco. It’s decidedly fruity and a little sweet smelling yet remains appealing. On e...

Mineral, dusty soil tones on the nose are joined by some fine apple and orange marmalade tones, all imbued with a certain meatiness. Round and lush on entry, this is large scaled in the mouth but lacks a bit of a center. The flavors are bright and cris...

It is very hard for me to find a white wine that I really enjoy. most are way over oaked or very acidic. Yet when I found this wine I felt like this wine was my long lost mate. The Cuvee Blanc is wonderfully balanced with just the right acid and fruit....

Those who know and love the Honey Chestnut will enjoy it like me. The attack is frank, though a little soft. The mouth is the product of bees (honey, wax). The final land smoothly without heaviness. Maturity: Drink today. Wait longer would take the ris...

Decent for the price. A predominantly roussanne French for eight bucks? Medium body, medium intensity. Floral and stone fruits on the nose, with flavors in kind. Better just slightly cool, rather than cold. A food wine. Read More

honeysuckle, lemon, apple aromas. pale golden color with lemon, honey, caramel flavors. Drinking very nice, love this wine Read More
Really unbelievable value from the southern Rhone, with ripe quince fruit, bitter honey and concentrated spice. Even better with pork tenderloin and gremolata. Would have looked for a case if I thought about it a second longer. Read More
I tried to search for a forum about this but I couldn't find one, even though I'm sure there is somewhere. Put simply, I am extremely confused about French Wines - I know they don't put the varietal on the label but that's about it. How do you know what you're buying? Can anyone give me any details or direct me to any good references about this ... Read More

Aromas of honeysuckle and lemon oil. Bright, zesty and refreshing and it lingers long and pleasantly. Nice pure fruits and a great intensity. I really enjoyed this and it would pair well with a multitude of foods and is great on its own.- Tasted at Marché Bacchus 2/13/10 Read More
This white rhone has a very floral/pineapple nose... mostly viognier... but blended with roussanne, marsanne.. I found it very floral and fruity on the nose, taste as well, but also having a deep balance... almost a mineral, anise finish.. reminds me of the finish of a russian river chard (though not chard- in any way). Pretty good for my sum... Read More
