Something a bit different. Gift from a client. Santa Cruz Roussanne. Great stuff. Lovely nose with some wood but loads of minerality as well. Palate is very balanced and pure and really much leaner than I expected. It’s deep but also elegant and has a nice viscosity to it. Long finish. Very nice. — 15 days ago

Domaine de la Côte Sainte-Epine

Vieilles Vignes St. Joseph Marsanne Roussanne Blend 2016

Waxy with a honey quality to it. Rich, lush mouthfeel. Loads of fragrance and flavor. However Not really my style. Needs food- I could see a big, creamy chicken dish. — 4 days ago

Domaine Le Bout du Monde

L'echappée belle Blanc Roussanne 2014

Had two bottles of this. The first was completely ruined somehow and our wine shop gave us a replacement. Glad they did.

Open, piercing, acidity with some fascinating bright ripe dark fruit.

Holus Bolus Blanc Santa Maria Valley Roussanne

There is a deceptively light richness about this wine - silky, full body but still very elegant. Good acidity for a rousanne with lemon zest, dry honey, quince and pear plus a lovely herbal quality that keeps it well balanced with both depth and finesse. It closes on a long finish with a saline mineral note. — 12 days ago
