Winemaker Notes

85% Marsanne, 15% Roussanne. The granite soils with Limestone and Clay. The vines on average are 40 years old. The vineyards here are planted on terraces, so all work is done manually. The grapes are vinified in steel tanks. The wine is aged half in steel tanks and half in 400 Liter demi-muids(3, 4, and 5 years old) for 12 months before bottling.

COMMENTARY: The 2020 Domaine Stephane Rousset Crozes-Hermitage Blanc is bright and juicy. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of ripe citrus, mineral notes, and tangerine zest. Enjoy it with a savory bouillabaisse. (Tasted: November 4, 2022, San Francisco, CA)

Domaine Rousset, France
Stéphane and Robert Rousset’s family goes back 11 generations in Crozes-Hermitage. Stéphane’s great uncle was the legendary Raymond Roure. This is how the Rousset’s came into their parcel of the Les Picaudières in Gervans. While the production is mainly Syrah, Stéphane has 3.5 hectares of his holdings planted to Marsanne and Roussanne. The Roussanne is a rather new addition to Rousset’s whites, with production only beginning in 2017. While the Roussanne is interesting to see here, the Marsanne growing in their parcels is some of the finest in the appellation.

Crozes-Hermitage is Northern Rhone’s largest appellation, surrounding the steep granite faces of Hermitage to its north and south. Here the rolling vineyards are less extreme and its soils, rich in clay-limestone and alluvial matter, produce Syrahs that range from fruity and charming to lush and seductive. The Syrahs of Crozes-Hermitage have more mass than those from St. Joseph but are less intense than those from Hermitage. While many are intended for early consumption, some of the best Syrahs from Crozes-Hermitage will age beautifully for 5-10 years.

Up to 15% of white grapes may theoretically be added to red Crozes at the time of fermentation but whether this is done or not depends on the decision of the winemaker. The best Crozes-Hermitage Syrahs will be fleshy with black fruit (currant, blackberry and black cherry) and bay leaf qualities, notes of tar and stone, and a well-concentrated finish of smooth tannins.

About a tenth of the wine produced in Crozes-Hermitage is white, primarily composed of Marsanne supplemented by smaller amounts of Roussanne.

Full-bodied and flavorful, white Rhône blends originate from France’s Rhône Valley. Today these blends are also becoming popular in other regions. Typically some combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier form the basis of a white Rhône blend with varying degrees of flexibility depending on the exact appellation. Somm Secret—In the Northern Rhône, blends of Marsanne and Roussanne are common but the south retains more variety. Marsanne, Roussanne as well as Bourboulenc, Clairette, Picpoul and Ugni Blanc are typical.
