Although not Bonny Doon, I recently drank a wine made with 100% roussanne for the first time and adored it. It seemed to bring out more of the terroir we have talked about before, than some of the other white wine varietals I have tried. It struck me as a grape that makes a very frenchie wine. :)

Interesting. Was it, indeed, a French wine? I think it's somewhat uncommon for the French to make a still wine that's all roussanne (there is a sparkling St-Péray, which I have never had but would love to try).


The 100% roussanne stunned me at first, as I know it to usually be blended with other varietals, but I really fell for it. It is made by a small operation in Oregon, actually. The winery is J. Scott Cellars, and the winemaker, Jonathan Oberlander, also produces a lovely pinot noir (naturally, as it is Oregon and all).

Thanks for following up. I will look for the J. Scott. Cheers, Meg
