The 2017 vintage of Roussanne opens with nuances of ripe, juicy pear. Served in a wide-mouthed Montrachet glass, the wine shows aromas of golden apple, baking spices, and subtle Meyer lemon. This wine has a rich mouthfeel and flavors of poached pear, marzipan, and lemon. Drink now and enjoy with cheesy risotto topped with spring peas and seared scallops.
