Interesting white Rhône produced from old vine Marsanne.

The 65-hectare appellation Saint Péray is situated in the Northern Côtes-du-Rhône, right bank, just south of Cornas. Saint Péray benefits from a continental climate with Mediterranean influence. The soil is composed of granite, chalk and clay. Grapes are selected from old vines, with some vines over 60 years old. Fermentation is in both oak and cuve with the malo all in wood followed by 12 months ageing in 400l barrels 25% new.

Cave de Tain St Peray Blanc ‘Fleur du Roc’s palate is rich, ripe stone fruit flavours and an interesting nuttiness with a mineral and saline edge that is typical of the appellation. Complex and long finish.

Great with chicken and fish in a cream sauce.

Cave de Tain, Fleur de Roc, St-Péray: “Orange blossom with subtle honeycomb edging. Medium- to full-bodied for the vintage, this has lovely sappy acidity running through it. A consistently very good cuvée from Cave de Tain, it’s a little oakier than usual perhaps, but has intensity, length and definition.” 92 pts – Matt Wells, Decanter (1st October 2021)
