ROUSSANNE
 
ROUSSANNE

VIN DE FRANCE ROUSSANNE 2012

• Origin: vines in the communes of Chavanay and Saint-Michel-sur-Rhône.

• Soils: granitic.

• Varieties planted: roussanne.

• Cultivation: plots are grass-covered to fight erosion. No insecticides or pesticides, few treatments (depending on weather), small amount of organic-only fertiliser, with respect of soil and vine balance. Vigour and yield control, leaf-thinning and green harvesting to promote grape maturation. Mechanisation is possible, but manual work is preferred.

Vinification: the grapes are hand-picked; then sorted and left to settle in the cellar. Alcoholic and malolactic fermented with native yeasts in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats.

• Maturing: 6 months on the lees in vats and barriques.

• Alcohol content: 12%.

• Output: approx. 17,600 bottles.

• Style: a wine with delicate fruity and floral aromas (honey, apricot, hawthorn and pear). Superbly elegant and balanced on the palate, with attractive fatness and a lingering finish.

• Ageing: drink young, up to 3-4 years.

• Food match: serve at 12°C with shellfish (e.g. mussels in white wine and lemon).
