Roussanne is a white grape variety that originated in the Rhône Valley of France. It is known for producing full-bodied and aromatic wines. Roussanne wines often display a golden or straw colour and offer complex flavours of stone fruits, such as peach and apricot, along with notes of honey, flowers, and herbs. They can have a rich and textured mouthfeel, balanced by a refreshing acidity. Roussanne is often blended with other grape varieties, such as Marsanne, to create well-rounded and expressive wines.
