MARSANNE

A grape rooted in the Rhône Valley

Marsanne

Also called Ermitage, Marsanne is associated with the great northern Rhône wines, where it enjoys warm, stony and not very fertile soils. Introduced to the Valais region of Switzerland during the 19th century, it has contributed to the revival of Swiss wines, delicate and subtle, often combined with Roussanne. It is found throughout the world in the composition of Australian, Spanish and Californian wines. In addition to its dry white wines, it is vinified as a sweet white wine under the appellation Ermitage Marsanne Grains Nobles and Vendanges Tardives (Switzerland), but also as a sparkling wine in Saint Péray. This rustic grape variety produces excellent gastronomic wines.

MORE INFORMATION

The Swiss Hermitage. Both an appellation and a grape variety, it owes its Valaisan name of Ermitage to the prestige of Marsanne from the Rhone Valley. Marsanne occupies the best slopes on the right bank of the Rhône and finds its favourite terroirs in the regions of Sion, Fully and Ardon. Most often matured in barrels, it offers dry white wines with a woody profile, rather rich texture and an incomparable aromatic power. The finesse of these wines makes them true gastronomy wines to be reserved for worthy meals.

As for the sweet wines, more commonly syrupy than mellow, they are made from late harvested or botrytised grapes.

Also called Ermitage, Ermitage Blanc, Ermitazh, Hermitage, Marsanne Blanche, White Hermitage, Marzanne, Marsan Belyi, Roussette de Saint Peray, Roussette Grosse, Grosse Roussette, Avilleran, Avilleron, Champagne Piacentina, Johannisberg, Metternich, Rousseau, and Zrmitazh.
