Roussanne is a white wine grape variety originating from the Rhône Valley in France, particularly in the northern appellations of Hermitage and Crozes-Hermitage. Known for its aromatic profile, richness, and ability to produce complex wines, Roussanne has gained recognition both in its homeland and in other wine regions around the world.
Roussanne wines are characterized by their full-bodied nature, rich texture, and a diverse array of flavors. Common tasting notes include ripe pear, honey, herbal nuances, and sometimes hints of nuts or spice. Roussanne is often blended with other white varieties, such as Marsanne, to create well-balanced and expressive wines.
In France, particularly in the Rhône Valley, Roussanne is an essential component in the production of white wines. It is also cultivated in regions like the Languedoc and Provence. Outside of France, Roussanne has found success in countries like the United States, especially in California, where it is often used in both varietal wines and blends. Australian winemakers also appreciate the grape's qualities, and it is gaining popularity in regions like McLaren Vale.
