Marsanne and Roussane have not had as much success as Viognier, but they are certainly worth seeking out as they are both truly unique grapes. While they are the only grapes permitted in Northern Rhône whites such as Crozes-Hermitage and Saint-Joseph, you can also find varietal bottlings from the Rhône-Rangers in California and in Austrailia.
Exploration is important, but the wines and recipes I’ve put together are a great start. I think you’ll find that Viognier, Marsanne and Roussane deserve a place in your repertoire.
