2011 Coupe d' Or, Roussanne+Marssane

2011 Roussanne + Marsanne

Coupe d' Or

El Dorado

This is our 4th year making this 50/50 blend of Roussanne and Marsanne but for the first time the blend is 75% Fenaughty Vineyard and 25% Elen Ridge which means 25% was skin fermented Roussanne. Bottled in August 2012, with 7 months in bottle this wine now shines and illustrates why we love white Rhone blends! \r \r 90pts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Issue 168 May/June 2013\r

Honeysuckle, lychee, grapefruit rind and orange blossom tickle the nose before revealing wet stone and hints of marzipan. Like previous vintages the wine's harmony and balance are near perfect which keeps the oily Roussanne character in check for a seamless and mouth coating finish.
