Winexpert LE22 French Viognier Roussanne Marsanne
A beautiful blend composed of the only three white wine grapes permitted to be grown in the Northern Rhone. It draws you in with inviting aromas of stone fruit, honeysuckle, and soft herbal notes. The palate is rich with expressive peach, apricot, and Meyer lemon flavors, just hinting at honeysuckle and brioche. This textured wine leans to the fuller side but stays smooth and fresh with elegant balance.
Sweetness: Dry | Body: Medium-Full | Oak: None | Alcohol: 13.5% ABV
About the region:
Northern Rhone & Savoie, France
The small and prestigious Northern Rhône region experiences a cooler climate than its southern counterpart, due to the mistral wind that brings in colder air. The tiny region of Savoie sits to the west bordering Switzerland and is the only alpine wine region in France. Vineyards are often planted at elevations between 250-550 meters but have a uniquely warm microclimate thanks to the southern sun exposure.

I’ve made over 100 batches of WinExpert kit wines. My initial sampling of this wine (LE22 - Northern Rhône Blend - Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne) during bottling, was pleasantly surprising. This is already great, some aging is going to improve it. This is going to be the best wine I ever made. This batch was a double - 60 bottles. So much so, I went back to Homebrewing and bought two more kits…the last two they had. Sorry everyone else, I got it all.
