2012 St Peray Lieu-dit Payrolles Pic et Chapoutier

Average critic rating : 92.5 points



I was able to retaste the 2012 St Peray Payrolles (reviewed last year and rated 92) and it showed gorgeously this go-round, with rock-star aromatics of honeysuckle, apple blossom, liquid rock and white flowers. Enjoy this medium-bodied, supple, seamless blend of 100% Marsanne over the coming 3-4 years. These wines are from a partnership between Michel Chapoutier and the Pic family (who run the incredible three-star restaurant, Pic, in Valence). Dec 2014, www.erobertparker.com, Drink: 2014-2018



Vivid gold. Lively, mineral-tinged aromas of ripe orchard and pit fruits, with a sexy floral nuance adding complexity. Deep, densely packed and broad in the mouth, offering ripe peach and poached pear flavors and emerging hints of honey and smoky minerals. In a powerful style, but with surprising vivacity and excellent finishing power and breadth and a repeating floral note. I'd put this complex wine up against plenty of whites from Hermitage.

Deep ripe stone and tropical fruits. Full-bodied, creamy vanilla notes with a rich butteriness. High acidity is balanced beautifully with the concentration, alcohol and body. Long finish with tangy tangerine notes. May 2016, FINE+RARE
