Tardieu-Laurent Saint Peray VV Blanc 2016
If you have ever been disappointed by the lack of depth and acidity in Marsanne and Roussanne, this wine is here to mend your broken heart. Roussanne is finicky and uncommon in Northern Rhône, so this 50/50 blend from 50-100 year old vines is a real treat. It has great texture, firm acidity, and great purity. Orange blossoms, honeysuckle, ginger, loquat, savory and herbs frame a vivid minerality which paints a picture of rocky vineyard soils.
