“Rousanne?” The first question we hear is “How do you pronounce it?”. The second question is “What is it?!?”. To answer the first, phonetically you would say “roo- sawn”. To answer the second we simple say, “It’s wonderful.”
Roussanne is a white Rhone varietal, most often used in blending, and very rarely found alone. We find this a tragedy! It is a beautiful stand-alone wine, as complex as a Chardonnay but not as heavy, and our most versatile pairing wine.
The nose of this fabulous wines opens with a filed of freshly growing hay and rounds out with a beautiful vanilla cream. On the big round mouth we find fresh honeydew and subtle hints of light tropical fruits This wine leaves you with a soft lingering light crème fraîche on the palate and a smile on your face!
