Saint-Péray Blanc "Les Sauvagères" 2012 - Paul Jaboulet Aîné


Saint- Péray is a small appellation next to Cornas, producing white wine exclusively - 30% of which are sparkling. These wines are fresher than other whites from the Rhône, thanks to the specific climate on the hills of Saint-Péray. This bottle is the still version and offers a lot: elegant flavours of white fruit and flowers, fresh and mineral personality and a perfect balance. An unusual appellation to discover.

What experts say  
  
87/100 "Other good whites include the elegant, Chablis-like St.-Peray Les Sauvageres, a blend of 85% Marsanne and 15% Roussane that was put through malolactic. It is notable for its floral, stony, mineral-dominated character." (Previous vintage)
