Sommelier-selected wine, paired with life.

Paul Jaboulet Aîné Saint-Péray Les Sauvagères

A tidbit about the grape(s)/wine style

Marsanne is a grape usually seen blended with grapes like Roussanne or Grenache Blanc, but here stands proudly on it's own. Marsanne can often have citrus and mineral notes, off-set by a waxy quality and rich mouthfeel. The grapes used for this wine were sourced from 30 year old vines grown on limestone soils. 

 

Grapes: 100% Marsanne
Region: Northern Rhone, France
Aging: 25% concrete egg, 20% stainless steel, 55% French oak
Alcohol: 13.5% abv
Tasting Notes: A delicate nose is countered with star fruit, yellow apple, lemon curd and yellow flowers on the palate. A bit of stony minerality and fresh acidity cut through an otherwise rich body.
Food Suggestions: Swordfish, lobster, chicken, tofu, eggs, cream and butter sauces
