Roussanne "Alban Vineyard"

Roussanne "Alban Vineyard" Wine Details
Price: $25.00 per bottle

Description: This is one of the best vintages of Alban Roussanne we’ve made (along with ’96 and ’99). The aroma shows smoke, flint, beeswax, with hints of honey and citrus. It’s an intense wine in the mouth, big with juicy acidity. Do Not serve as an aperitif, this wine should go with the meal (grilled fish or roast pork come to mind). I believe this wine will age nicely for 10-15 years.

Varietal Definition
Also known as Bergeron in the french Savoie region. Semi-classic grape grown in the Hermitage-Rhone and southern Cotes du Rhone region of France. Still occasionally incorporated into white wine blends, (e.g: with the Marsanne grape wine), because of its acidity and aroma but finding less and less favor.
