Marsanne is widely planted in France’s Rhone Valley and is used to produce medium to full bodied wines with low acidity. Marsanne balances a spicy minerality with pear, honey, almond and citrus flavors. As Marsanne ages it becomes more complex and routinely develops a thick, rich, oily texture.

Similar to Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, Marsanne is often blended with Roussanne to soften some of its rough edges.
