Saint-Peray is a small appellation for white wines right next to the Hermitage vineyards, benefiting from the cooler climate of local hills. Mostly made of the Marsanne grape, it is the perfect next step in terms of complexity for lovers of white Côtes du Rhône. If you are one of them, you will appreciate this wine showing a low acidity and subtle aromas of white flowers, honey and almonds. Very delicate.

|What experts say|
91/100 "The 2016 Saint Peray Le Mialan offers up aromas of white peaches and nectarines, plus notions of toasted grain (it was aged partially in demi-muids). It's medium-bodied, with a plump, succulent texture, and an appealingly silky texture that lingers through the finish. It should drink well for a few years."
|93/100 "Offers yellow apple, star fruit and white peach flavors, carried by fresh, energetic acidity. A light mineral edge underscores the finish, while chamomile and verbena details linger. Drink now through 2020."|
