Roussanne White 2020

COTES DU RHÔNE - 100% ROUSSANNE - A DISCOVERY OF THIS GRAPE VARIETY ALL IN FINESSE

Story

The wine
Since 2006, the Quiot Family, charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail and its products of character, owns the Château du Trignon in order to perpetuate it, while expanding it by 10 ha of Vacqueyras and few hectares of Beaume-de-Venise.
"Respectful of achievement but rich of our wine-maker knowledge, we have adopted this land whose singularity fits in with all our others properties, in the same line of tradition, quality and adaptation."
Location
The Rhône Valley has always been a privileged passage between the Mediterranean world and northern or Atlantic Europe. The very fruitful archaeological research carried out in the region, combined with historical studies, establish the Côtes du Rhône as one of the first wine-growing regions in the world. From 125 BC, the Romans planted vines and built low walls protecting the terraces. They make this region one of the most beautiful in Narbonne Gaul. This notoriety will increase over the centuries and will take shape in 1937 with the consecration of the CDO - Controlled Designation of Origin - Côtes du Rhône.
For white wines, 80% of the grape varieties are represented by Grenache blanc, Clairette, Marsanne, Roussanne, Bourboulenc and Viognier. Thanks to the blend of these different grape varieties, they combine aromas and freshness.
At Château du Trignon, we have chosen not to blend our grape varieties and to produce 3 x 100% ROUSSANNE, 100% MARSANNE and 100% VIOGNIER, in order to allow everyone to discover the qualities of each of the grape varieties.
