Saint-Péray "Haut Chamblard" 2020
Rhône Valley - Saint-Péray
A lightly toasted first nose with hints of almond and brown butter then, after the wine has had a chance to breathe, complex aromas of ripe yellow-fleshed fruit and sweet spices emerge.
Broad on entry to the palate, well-balanced with a lovely downy texture. The structure is dense and saline, the roasted yellow fruit gives way to fine empyreumatic overtones on the finish.
Recommanded food pairing: Sole Meunière, grenobloise sauce and glazed carrots. Serving temperature: 12 ° to 14 °C
