Roussanne

Château de Beaucastel

Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Roussanne 2012

A note from last weekend at the Gold Coast. Initially too cool from the fridge so left it for 20 minutes. Mid to a deeper yellow in colour. Aromas of Apricot and Quince with a touch of honey. On the palate - quince, apricot, pear - a mouthful of deliciousness and a flavour explosion - low acid. Texturally it is unctuous with the blend being around 80% Roussane. These vines were planted nearly 100 years ago and comprise only 3 Hectares. Needless to say the quantities produced are small. Must locate more if I can find. In summary a stunning full bodied white wine. — 20 days ago

Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet (Hervé Souhaut)

"Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet" Vin de Pays de l'Ardèche Blanc Viognier Roussanne

2021/4. I hadn’t had Souhat in a little while. I liked the wines before, but felt they could be a bit on the overtly “natural” side - a little more restraint would bring more typicity. Well, that seems to have happened here - there’s nothing overdone about this wine, and that’s with 60% being Viognier too. Lovely yellow peach, wackiness, savory mineral, and a hint of tropical fruit that actually smells like tropical fruit (mangosteen? jackfruit) instead of Juicy Fruit. — 12 days ago

Domaine Blachon

St. Joseph Marsanne Roussanne 2016

Magnum for Mother’s Day. Starts bold and calms to a light but rich wine. Good smoked meat and chewy herbs. Tannins are silky and fade quickly. Not the most complex wine, but works well abs better than most southern Rhone. — 7 days ago

Domaine du Tunnel (Stéphane Robert)

St. Péray Roussanne 2019

Have not met a wine Stephane makes that I haven’t liked. Vibrant, charming, full of Rhône texture and fresh. Incredibly spiced, making it super enjoyable at the table with food but also plays to an aperitif role with it’s sheer drinkability — 14 days ago

Qupé

Alban Vineyard Roussanne 1995

Still very much alive and quite enjoyable. Straw yellow in the glass. Nose of apricots, ripe pears and butterscotch. Nice acidity brings this one fully into balance. Would be fun to have a couple more bottles just to see how long it could go… — 15 days ago
