Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) This wine is quite different than our previous vintages...leaner, focused with more nerve. The aromas show classic roussanne characters of hazelnut, peach pit, a slight floral note and great minerality. In the mouth this wine grabs you from the start with refreshing, mouthwatering acidity.

    (2006 Vintage) Very rich and very well-fruited with top-notes of honey and hardwood spice to its themes of optimally ripened pears, Qupe's Roussanne surprises by showing a little more nervy acidity than expected once in the mouth. Even if a touch tangy and slightly hot at the end, it is just as fruity at the finish as it is at the start, and it should stay in good shape and grow for several years.
