Smooth White Wine
Roussanne is a nice white wine found primarily in France, but also grown in California. It has smooth, nutty flavors which are often used in blending.
There are a number of famous wines which use Roussanne in their blends. For example, Chateauneuf du Pape includes this grape in their list of options.
Where most white wine grapes are green to gold in color, Roussanne turns almost a light brown color when it becomes ripe.
