Marsanne

Marsanne is a white wine variety from the Rhone Valley in France. In Switzerland and Savoie, Marsanne is sometimes referred to as “Ermitage”. This is due to the ability to produce some of the most famous white wines of Hermitage. Marsanne has been adopted and grown successfully in Australia, and the United States. Marsanne is full bodied with excellent weight and structure, however it can struggle to produce good acidity in warm climates. In cooler climates, Marsanne will shine and produce complex wine worthy of age. Marsanne will have a light straw color with hints of gold and green. On the nose, Marsanne will allow for an earthy and mineral tone with characteristics of honeysuckle and melon. When aged, Marsanne becomes a rich amber color with nut and orange marmalade flavor. Marsanne has the potential to age for up to 15 years. Marsanne is often blended with more aromatic varieties such as Roussanne and Clairette in northern Rhone. When paired with Roussanne, Marsanne produces the sparkling wine, Saint-Peray. In Languedoc, Marsanne is blended Viognier and Rolle.
