Chateau de Lancyre is arguably the best domaine in the Languedoc's top wine district, Pic St. Loup. The Lancyre Roussanne offers aromas of peaches and country hay on the nose, with just a touch of spearmint and honey. It is big, bold and crisp, with great freshness on the palate. Enjoy this unoaked wine on its own or with poultry, creamy pasta dishes, or seafood (especially sole or fried calamari). 90% Roussanne, 10% Viognier.
"...scented with fennel, mint, pear, Persian melon, and diverse floral perfume, all of which follow on a luscious, silken palate, to which finishing notes of cress, white pepper, pear pip, and crushed stone lend invigoratingly incisive, tactile counterpoint....There are a lot of experiments in the Languedoc and Roussillon with Roussanne and Viognier (of which this bottling always contains a bit), but few if any have proven more consistently compelling than Lancyre’s, and none I know has demonstrated remotely its track record..."
