Varietal Character

Possibly of Greek origin, Bourboulenc is a white of the Southern Rhone. Wines are destinctive with good acidity, penetrating flavors of citrus and a background that might suggest a bit of smoke. Picking decisions are critical to gaining the maximum varietal character, too soon and little is revealed. Tight clusters do make this varietal subject to rot under poor growing conditions.
