Nuances of preserved Meyer lemons and camomile tea dominate the nose together with ripe yellow peaches. Aromas of apricot and potpourri, typical of Marsanne leap from the glass with Roussanne adding delicate mineral notes.
On the palate the lovely texture of the Marsanne is complemented by the leaner character of the Roussanne providing a refreshing, saline acidity. Finishing nutty and long, this wine is our take on a Rhone Valley classic.
