Marsanne is a white wine grape that is primarily grown in the Rhône Valley region of France. It is also cultivated in other parts of the world, including Australia and California.
This grape is known for producing full-bodied and aromatic wines with a rich and complex flavor profile. Marsanne wines often exhibit notes of ripe stone fruits, such as apricot and peach, as well as hints of honey and nuts.
The Rhône Valley, particularly the northern part, is considered the birthplace of Marsanne, where it is often blended with Roussanne to create exceptional white wines.
