Fanucchi Vineyards: Russian River Valley, The Fanucchi Wood Road Vineyard, Trousseau Gris 2006
Trousseau Gris (Troo-so-gree) has a crisp, clean, flowery bouquet with flavors of fresh peaches, honeysuckle, pear, melon, delicate spice and tropical fruit flavors which makes it a delightful compliment to a wide array of foods! Compare its “nose” to Viognier or Marsanne, with a gentler spice than a dry Gewürztraminer and far, far, more fruit than the best Pinot Gris could ever hope for! After bottling it can take a few months for this wine to open up, some times not opening up near it’s best till the following fall. In the event you forget a hidden bottle in the back of your cool dark, secret storage place do not fear. You will discover that its natural effervescence will provide a few years of safe aging!

Dan Berger included Fanucchi Vineyards Trousseau Gris again “among some of the most exciting wines of the year”! In the December 25, Napa Valley register article: The Orphan Wines “…I love the excitement you can find in unusual varieties,.. always make my list of most interesting wines. …Orphans, like semillon, Trousseau Gris, albariño, pinot blanc and barbera, need adopting. Fanucchi Vineyards in the Russian River Valley makes a Trousseau Gris each year that is fresh and fruity, a superb aperitif wine.” This article also appeared in New York Times’ Press Democrat on December 23rd.
