Doyenne Roussanne

Doyenne Roussanne Wine Details
Price: $30.00 per bottle

Description: The vibrant honeysuckle, lime, and delicate white flowers express a very pretty bouquet in this wine. It is delicious with rich, plush flavors of lime and passion fruit that spread across the palate to a powerful and long finish. This is a classic Roussanne with no oak to get in the way of all of the delicate, elegant and fragrant nuances.

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.
