Roussanne grapes are thin and tart, and not often bottled on
their own in Europe. Generally, they are blended with Marsanne
in France's Rhône Valley and with Chardonnay in other
areas. It is one of two white grape varietals allowed to grow
in the Rhône, and they're used there to create rare white
wines such as Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
One-hundred-percent Roussannes are somewhat rare, but are fine,
delicate wines often with aromas of wild flowers or green tea.
Roussannes pair well with seafood such as crab and lobster.
