Anne Pichon Roussanne Wine
Anne Pichon Roussanne is a light white wine with a hint of spiked vanilla pudding and lovely tangerine nuances. On the palate, this wine comes across with a hint of tiramisu. The wine has a lovely integration of acidity and green fruit and wonderful balance of oak, cream, and nutmeg with a hazelnut finish. The wine is left for 9 months in new oak barrels before being bottled.
All the vineyards are cultivated using 100% organic practices without the use of any chemicals or pesticides, and the soils are tilled manually. Additionally, all harvesting is done by hand and each varietal is vinified separately. The main goal at Murmurium is to maintain a style of rich, ripe and hand crafted wines through careful vineyard management, low yields and late harvesting.
Dave\'s August 2014 Pick
The Anne Pichon winery from the Southern Rhone region of France is one of my favorites because it consistently produces terrific wines at great prices. Rousanne is a white grape many people are not familiar with because has been used for a long time in Rhone as a blending grape for both red and white wines. It is difficult to grow but the results are worth it. Flavors and aromas of wildflowers, almond, apple and pear matched with crisp acidity and minerality make this a great food wine. Remember your grill is not just for hot dogs, hamburgers and steaks. Pork, chicken and fish all taste great off the grill and this is the perfect wine to compliment them. Added bonus, Anne Pichon winery farms using 100% organic practices.
