Roussanne also pairs well with pate, roast chicken, pork, veal, cream sauces, spicy flavors, Asian cuisine and with a vast array of different soft and hard cheeses.
Can you share any fun facts about this particular wine?
Roussanne is one of those wines that is widely believed to experience a "dumb period" in its bottle development: a stage wherein it is "closed" and unyielding. That stage, for Roussanne, seems to lie between 3 or 4 years of age on to 7 or 8 years of age. (Drink early, or wait a good while.)
