The 2010 L'Aventure Estate Roussanne from Paso Robles, California is a unique, palate-pleasing white wine. A deep, rich green-gold color reflects the complexity and balance of this Roussanne and Grenache Blanc blend. With strong, refreshing stone-fruit flavors, particularly with hints of ripe peach and juicy apricot, this fruity 2010 L'Aventure Estate Roussanne is a perfect fuller-bodied white. Accentuated with earthy mineral notes at the center, the aromas of summer stone fruit are complemented by crisp caramel apples, creating a harmonious balance in the wine. Mirroring the beautifully composed palate, the nose reflects strong scents of fresh apricot and peach balances by elegantly soft florals.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2010 Roussanne is the first wine that includes fruit from the estate's young Grenache Blanc vines, 13% in this case. The Grenache Blanc and blocked malo combine to give the wine gorgeous minerality to balance the varietal floral and yellow stone fruit notes from the Roussanne. This is a delicious white from L'Aventure. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2014.
