Roussanne Wine Details

Description: You are rewarded with well defined aromas of crisp green apple and pear kissed with notes of delicate honeysuckle blossoms and beautiful summer peaches. The fruity aromas are balanced with the inherent acidity of the wine that yields a distinctly mineral character and a flinty vitality with balance, complexity and a crisp finish.

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.
