Ensedune Marsanne Coteaux d'Enserune

A Marsanne from Languedoc's Foncalieu

Ensedune, d'Enserune

- James, Sit Down (1989)

Marsanne is a rich, waxy sort of grape that is tricky to grow well. It originated in the Northern Rhone where it is often blended with Rousanne and can cost serious £s.

This Ensedune from Vignobles Foncalieu is, rather like the Pinot reviewed here, a more affordable version of a cult wine; from one of the warmest and driest climates in France it took the Foncalieu team a few vintages to get it right.

Ensedune Marsanne Coteaux  d'Enserune surprisingly lightweight for a Languedoc Delicate orchard and melon fruits, waxy texture with saline minerality. Elegant and well-made.


Match with shellfish or white meat.
