2018 AUGUSTE CLAPE Saint Peray 75cl (Rhone Valley, France)
Style - Rich
Grapes - Marsanne, Roussanne
Tasting - A broad sweep of melon, honeysuckle ginger and cream. The low acid lushness is neatly offset by a tingle of lemon-salt stoniness. The Clape magic is at work once again.
FYI: Domaine Auguste Clape is rightly legendary for their insanely good Cornas (red from Syrah). But this white is far rarer and just as magical, if not as long-lived.
