Winemaker Ray Coursen Notes
The 2007 L'Ingénue is comprised of four white grape varietals that are well known to the Rhone Valley of France, and very well received by the terroir of the Sierra Foothills. This particular blend includes Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier and Grenache Blanc. The wine is light golden straw colored with exquisite aromas of honeysuckle, lycee nuts, peaches and a hint of orange zest. Explosive fruit flavors of pineapple, cherimoya, apricot, pear and fig show through this wine’s intriguing viscosity, followed by a creamy mouth feel and crisp acidity. L’Ingénue has great palate weight, wonderful texture, bright fruit and a long, supple, lasting finish. This is a white even a die-hard red wine drinker will enjoy! Serve with shellfish, r ...more... ich seafood dishes and fowl. This wine’s substantial weight and bright fruit also make a nice pairing with spicy Asian cuisine. This wine will age beautifully for 3 – 7 years.
