Colour : Dense golden yellow with green lights.
Nose : Firstly, on the nose, the wine presents a great
aromatic complexity with citrus aromas, white-fleshed
fruit, pear and great floral notes (hawthorn). We also notice
some notes of reductions with great vegetal notes
(polypod, anise…) giving elegance and freshness.
Mouth : The palate is generous, ample and enhanced
by a great mineral tension. We notice a great aromatic
persistency on the finale.
Anne-Sophie Pic suggests to serve a turbot steamed
over grated black truffle with asparagus and peppermint
with this Saint-Péray “Sélection Parcellaire”.
Grapes come from a granitic soil at high altitude on a small
local area, Payrolles.
Grapes are hand-harvested.
The whole bunches are pressed. The fermentation
is performed in casks under controlled temperature
with natural yeasts.
Then the wine is aged in ½ muids (600 l) barrels from
10 to 12 months.
