2012 Truchard roussanne

I shared it with a wedge of Brie and a friend ("what 're you trying to do, educate me?"). Delicious. It would also pair lusciously with Thanksgiving turkey and all those rich side dishes. Think of roussanne, a grape of the Rhone valley in southern France, as the younger brother to his elder sister chardonnay, in Burgundy, to the north. He has her full warm fruitiness but lacks a bit of her cool-climate acidity.

Pardon the lemon in the photo. It just happened to be there.

Retail, about $25.
