Maison Tardieu-Laurent Saint-Peray Vieilles Vignes 2016

The Maison Tardieu-Laurent Saint-Peray Vieilles Vignes is a northern Rhône white wine blend of Marsanne (50%) and Rousanne (50%) grapes that are aged for 12 months in a combination of new and one year old french oak barrels and then bottled without fining and light filtration.

The wine offers orange blossom, marmalade, peach and honeysuckle aromas that continue onto the palate. Rich, textured and balanced this is a white wine with great purity and will drink nicely in the short-term or cellar for even longer if required.
