2014 Paul Jaboulet Aîné, Les Sauvagères, Saint-Péray, Rhône Valley
£12.99, 13%, Rude Wines
Tasted at: March Tasting Review
Saint Péray tends to get overlooked as a source of excellent northern Rhône whites, lost in the shadow of more famous (and expensive) Hermitage and Condrieu. But this pure Marsanne from one of the region's best known names is delicious: aromatic and floral, with notes of wild herbs and honeysuckle, a touch of oak, hints of fennel and aniseed and a long, stylish, refreshing finish.
