Marsanne

The grape most likely originated in the Northern Rhône region where it is widely planted today. It is a principal component of the white wines from the Hermitage, Crozes-Hermitage and Saint-Joseph AOCs. Marsanne produces deeply coloured wines that are rich and nutty, with hints of spice and pear.
