TASTING NOTES

"Pale yellow. Expressive aromas of fresh orchard fruits, melon and white flowers are sharpened by a subtle citrus zest nuance. Sappy and sharply focused on the palate, offering pear nectar and honeydew flavors and a touch of dusty minerality. Finishes with firm mineral cut and strong persistence, leaving a sexy floral note behind." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"The only white wine chez Clape is the 2016 Saint Péray. From a single hectare, it’s a blend of 70% Marsanne and 30% Roussanne. It shows plenty of spice—clove and pepper—to go along with ripe, honeyed fruit and citrus zest. It seems fresh yet nutty at the same time, an intriguing juxtaposition." Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #234
