Saint-Peray Vieilles Vignes Tardieu-Laurent 2016

Bastien Tardieu calls this “the little Hermitage Blanc”. 50% Marsanne (50-100 years old) and 50% Roussanne (over 40 years old – the finicky Roussanne is rather uncommon in the northern Rhône so this is a treat). A wonderfully spicy/smoky nose, with pastry notes and a nutty breadth. Yellow flowers. The palate is tangy and concentrated, combining impressive weight with a highline of acidity. Tangerine rind, orange zest, with salty, oyster shell minerality. A big wine this year. It is aged for 12 months in a mixture of new and one year old barrels.

"Rare, this is a characterful white with wonderful old vine fruit intensity."
