Roussanne Wine Details
Price: $16.00 per bottle

Description: Sassy! Spicy! Elegant! Barrel fermentation imparts a buttery finish to the underlying hints of pear and passion fruit. Says one winemaker, "It's like a Chardonnay with a tiny pine tree on top!"

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.
