The Wine Advocate


The Wine Advocate - I was able to retaste the 2012 St Peray Payrolles (reviewed last year and rated 92) and it showed gorgeously this go-round, with rock-star aromatics of honeysuckle, apple blossom, liquid rock and white flowers. Enjoy this medium-bodied, supple, seamless blend of 100% Marsanne over the coming 3-4 years.

The Region


St Péray is a small Northern Rhône wine appellation situated directly south of Cornas, and directly west of Valence. There are 65 hectares of vineyards (mostly limestone-based), and the main production is sparkling wine made via the traditional method.

Ninety percent of the planting is Marsanne, the remainder being made up of Rousanne and the lesser-known Roussette. Production of still whites is on the increase and this is undoubtedly an appellation to watch.
