Chateau Rouanne is a deeply perfumed and dazzling new project by Louis Barruol of Château de Saint Cosme in Gigondas. Château de Rouanne is a historic estate with a 12th century medieval castle, situated on a classified Roman site located in the southern Rhône Valley. The name of the estate comes from "Rugius", which is said to be the name of the original Roman owner. The wine is a classic southern Rhone GSM blend (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre) that will give more expensive bottlings from Gigondas and Chateaunduf labels designation a run for the money, it is an incredible value. The distinctive freshness and saltiness of this Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre blend makes it easy to pair with both rustic and sophisticated dishes. The smooth, red-fruit character of the wines make it a great choice for tomato-based dishes such as ratatouille, while the richness from the Syrah also allow it to pair with lamb, venison or beef.
