The 65-hectare appellation Saint Péray is situated in the Northern Côtes-du-Rhône, right bank, just south of Cornas. Saint Péray benefits from a continental climate with Mediterranean influence. The soil is composed of granite, chalk and clay. Grapes are selected from old vines, with some vines over 60 years old. Fermentation is in both oak and cuve with the malo all in wood followed by 12 months ageing in 400l barrels 25% new.
The palate is rich, ripe stone fruit flavours and an interesting nuttiness with a mineral and saline edge that is typical of the appellation. Complex and long finish.
