“R” grape entries


One of the classic Rhône varietals famous for the white blends of Hermitage, St. Joseph and St. Péray. Currently this grape is losing ground to its usual blending partner Marsanne due to its tendancy to rot, mildew and ripen late. Also one of the grapes allowed in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape red blends of the southern Rhône. When given proper care Roussanne can produce lovely wines that age very well and have aromas of herbs, tea and apples. Roussanne is also found throughout the southern parts of France, as well as in Savoie in the Loire valley where it is known as Bergeron. Fine examples of late have been produced by the collective Rhône Rangers of California.
