A native of the Rhone Valley, Roussanne is a late ripening variety that produces powerful and rich white wines that offer perfumed aromas that often develop a silky, exotic, oily texture. Roussanne wines are best enjoyed either within the first few years of bottling or after extensive aging (15 to 20 years).
Food Pairing Notes
This wine pairs well with a wide variety of seafood dishes, especially shellfish, cod, lobster, crab and of
course the most important fish dish of Southern France, bouillabaisse.
