White varietals : Marsanne and Roussanne

MARSANNE is the main white varietal of the northern Cotes du Rhône. It displays exceptional longevity in the warm, pebbly soil: one hundred-year-old vines are not uncommon! This variety does best in soils rich in clay or alluvial deposits, that retain water.

There are also a few ROUSSANNE vines throughout the Hermitage vineyards.

The Cave’s knowledge & craftsmanship: thanks to an old plot of Marsanne, the Cave de Tain has continued the tradition of Hermitage “Vin de Paille” since 1985: a rare nectar that should be savoured!
