Intense straw yellow colour. This Saint-Péray is elegant and expressive with a floral nose and notes of white pulp fruits. The palate has flavours of peach, pear and apricot with a toasty mouthfeel and a long finish.
The vineyards for Jaques’ Saint-Péray are located on very steep granite hillsides and this Cuvée Elegance is made with grapes from the oldest vines. The wine is aged in French oak barrels (25% new) for up to three years, and on its fine lees for 12 months with regular batonnage (stirring). Great now but would be really interested to keep and try in four or five years.
