Roussanne White

The Roux Family acquired the Château du Trignon in 1896. Back then it was a traditional Provençal farm of the time, with mixed and livestock farming. Since then 5 generations have refocused the farm on the vine and expanded the estate; a qualitative approach is also underway.
In 2006, the familly Quiot charmed by the Dentelles de Montmirail, wish to perpetuate Château du Trignon.

It’s unusual to find 100% Roussanne wines, but this is a terrific example at a realistic price. It’s broad and mouth-coating but still seems fresh, with melon, pear and pineapple flavors that linger on the tightly focused finish. Drink over the next year or two.
