Opens like a Savennières, three hours later it’s creamier and rounder like a lemon Meringue pie. Ripe apricot, honey, beeswax, chive, acacia, lemon, cream Fraiche, lemon pie, stony minerality, richly textured on the palate with the right amount of phenolics and an ultra long and pleasing finish. Such a lovely wine!! Elevated acidity. Medium gold in color.

I expected a crisp mountain wine but the aroma is like a slightly oxidized chenin blanc. Ripe apples, spice, honey, and fresh flowers. Smooth, full-bodied, tart apple. A touch of tannin. Don't drink too cold.

Interesting wine from Domaine Louis Magnin. I’ve had more experience with his Mondeuse (Red) and the Rousette (2nd White). My first time having his pure Roussanne, which is released with some age on it. The wine wine had a nice saline finish, and was lively on the palate. A hit with three of the four dishes we paired it with at my first visit to Anton’s: mousse of chicken livers and hearts; Spaghetti Anchoiade; Grilled Pork Chop with Apple Sauce; and Dry-aged Duck with Red Peas & Sour Cherries. The sauce for the red peas (almost lentil like) has a spice that didn’t work with the wine, but the duck itself was very nice. All around a very good experience, both the restaurant and the wine.

Not very aromatic as Roussanne goes, but it’s layered with peach, lemon, floral, honey, pear, subtle roast nuts, with touch of saltiness. Richly textured, it is deep and multifaceted. Also a very versatile wine that went well with a wide range of dishes we had the night, from grilled pork porterhouse, milk-poached cod, and sauté shrimp with jalapeño. Need to drink more Roussanne.
