(Marsanne pronunciation: Mahr-SAHN)
Northern Rhône’s most popular white wine grape, Marsanne is typically blended with Roussanne and Clairette. It finds popularity within California, Washington, and Australia for its nutty and sweet spice flavor. Full-bodied, low-acidity, Marsanne maintains relatively a high alcohol and gives aromas of peach, citrus, honeysuckle, and almond. Its surprising minerality adds to its fruity and rich flavoring.
Typically designed to be enjoyed young, premium bottles can actually age beautifully up to a decade to improve its taste. A perfect seafood pairing, enjoy your Marsanne with lobster, crab, and entrees in cream sauce. If you or a dinner guest are opposed to fishy foods, a roast chicken, pasta carbonara, or squash is also an excellent pairing with this wine variety. Often considered Chardonnay’s less-known sister, Marsanne has been featured in our Platinum Wine Club and has quickly sold out each time!
