A cloudy gold Rousanne – Marsanne with amber reflections, a sign of clear evolution. Uncorking three years after harvest. Dense tear for more detail. A timid nose but with evident signs of evolution, notes of fresh walnuts and almonds are rescued above all. In her mouth a dry and pleasantly bitter entry. Dense development (13.5% vol.) but at the same time light, with aging in barrels and half-muid. Mouth-aromas on the palate that, as a result of time, reminds us of Fino or Manzanilla de Jerez with those notes of nuts, ripe citrus and herbs. Clean finish, without any excess SO2.

This wine is the result of artisan work that respects the soil and all the stages of growth of the vine. The micro-vinification has revealed all the personality of the Peyorouses terroir and as a result we have a wine closer to Sherry-Xérès than to Condrieu or St-Peray. We can match this white Peyrouses as an appetizer with some olives or crustaceans such as prawns or lobster. The fried fish, gazpacho, salmorejo and rice dishes perfectly harmonize this marvelous wine valued at around 20 euros.
