Kristen Bieler writes:  A broad, seductive style that still carries poise. Beautiful floral high tones introduce a plump range of honeydew, jasmine and white peach flavors. A bitter quinine note and flinty minerality shore up the palate in this solid white, backed by a whiff of smoke. Drink now through 2027.  - Wine Spectator 90

 

AGEING POTENTIAL: Enjoy all year long, 2 to 3 years

TASTING: Straw yellow colour. Apricot, may blossom, honey and elegant smell of Narcissus notes.

SERVING: Drink chilled. Even if we recommend to drink this wine when it is young, the Roussanne allows the development of good aging potential wine.

FOOD PAIRINGS: Pair with raw vegetables and pasta.

The Rhône Valley has always been a privileged passage between the Mediterranean world and northern or Atlantic Europe. The very fruitful archaeological research carried out in the region, combined with historical studies, establish the Côtes du Rhône as one of the first wine-growing regions in the world. From 125 BC, the Romans planted vines and built low walls protecting the terraces. They make this region one of the most beautiful in Narbonne Gaul. This notoriety will increase over the centuries and will take shape in 1937 with the consecration of the CDO - Controlled Designation of Origin - Côtes du Rhône. For white wines, 80% of the grape varieties are represented by Grenache blanc, Clairette, Marsanne, Roussanne, Bourboulenc and Viognier. Thanks to the blend of these different grape varieties, they combine aromas and freshness.
At Château du Trignon, we have chosen not to blend our grape varieties and to produce 3 x 100% ROUSSANNE, 100% MARSANNE and 100% VIOGNIER, in order to allow everyone to discover the qualities of each of these grape varieties.
