2018 Louvau Vineyards Roussanne

Originally grown in the Rhone wine region of France, Roussanne is a primary component in the white wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.   Roussanne drinks very well as a young wine, but will develop more complexity and depth if aged 7-8 years.

TASTING NOTES:  Aromas of wildflower honey and ripe apricot are complemented by baking spice.  This wine is balanced with stone fruit flavors as well as a rich, creamy brioche with hints of nutmeg spice on the palate.  An appetizing layer of subtle acidity balances out the full mouth feel.   
FOOD PAIRING:  This wine is an excellent with rich shellfish and salmon dishes with lemon and herbs.  Try this wine with steamed clams in a white wine sauce, and plenty of sourdough bread.
