Roussanne

Roussanne is a white grape variety that is said to have originated in the Drôme department in the Rhone Valley. It is rarely grown in other parts of France and its production is extremely limited in the Languedoc.
This is a late-ripening grape, harvested between the end of August and early September. Roussanne is well suited to rather stony, lean calcareous clay soils. Good exposure is a must, and the best results are obtained when there are pronounced cool, continental climatic influences, yielding fine, delicate wines of extremely high quality that feature straw yellow colour, a remarkable nose and excellent ageing potential.

  • Tasting Pale gold in colour, Les Jamelles Roussanne is a rich, full-bodied wine with floral notes on the nose (honeysuckle, peony, hawthorn), and flavours of apricot and dried fruits on the palate. This is a wine with remarkably intense aromas and flavours, allying finesse with lightness and elegance.
  • Food & Wine This Roussanne is best served at 10°-12°C as an aperitif though it is also the perfect match for scallops, white meats in a light sauce, salmon, gnocchi with three-cheese sauce, eggplant tart or goat’s cheeses. Catherine Delaunay suggests pairing it with a chicken tajine with preserved lemons.
