Saint-Péray

White wine

Grape variety

Marsannne.

Soil

Clay and calcareous soils.

Harvest

Grapes are hand-harvested.

Vinification

The whole grapes are pressed.
Fermentation is done at low temperature in casks and in vats.

Maturing

A part of the wine is aged in barrels on fine lees with regular stirrings.
Bottling is done by the end of spring which follows harvesting.

Tasting

Color: straw yellow which is a characteristic of a good maturity of the grapes. Limpid and brilliant.

Nose: intense nose of white flesh fruits, floral (hawthorn) and mineral.

Palate: a lot of fatness, aromas of white peach, a good minerality, a hint of bitter almond which extends the palate in the final.

Anne-Sophie’s suggested pairing:

scampi marinated with mint, accompanied by green pea purée and spring onions with mint-flavoured liquorice
