Roussanne is the backbone of the greatest white wines of Hermitage and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Notoriously difficult to grow, it’s been planted in French vineyards for hundreds of years but it only made its way to California in the 1980s courtesy of the “Rhone Rangers” – a group of iconic American winemakers largely responsible for spearheading the emergence of Rhône varietals stateside.
Lot 767 comes to us from one of these “Rhone Ranger” wineries, produced from a hillside block of one of the state’s most famous vineyards and using a clone that originally came from Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s Beaucastel. Aged in French oak barrels previously used for Burgundian Chardonnay, the wine is a fantastic cool-climate expression of this rare white grape, showcasing a rich flavor profile with a bright beam of acidity.
