K&L Notes

Remy Nodin founded his winery in 2008. Prior to that, his fruit was all sold to the large cooperative Cave de Tain. He farms 9 hectares throughout the northern Rhone including holdings in Crozes-Hermitage, Cornas, St. Joseph and Saint-Peray. It is worth noting that Saint-Peray in its heyday produced sparkling wines that commanded more money than their famed counterparts to the north in Champagne. The market fell apart largely due to phylloxera in the early 20th century and was all but forgotten. Recently renewed interest has occurred and Saint Peray has reemerged with production in both still and sparkling wine. Remy uses 100% Marsanne from his lieu-dit vineyard La Beylesse. The wine is aged 21 months on the lees and finished with a dosage of 5g/L of residual sugar giving this wine a nice toasty complexity and a very dry racy finish.

Saint Peray is one of those regions you don't hear much about unless you are studying for a sommelier exam. Marsanne and Roussanne rule this white producing region but where the cleverness really comes in, is with the sparkling wines. There is a long storied history here for bubbles and sadly most of it has vanished. The Remy Nodin is toasty with a fine mousse. More yellow apple and Meyer lemon drive the flavor profile finishing with a nice toasty edge. Perfect as an aperitif or drink with some lighter foods. Try this Blanc de Blancs and you can finally check another obscure wine off your bucket list.

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Marsanne

- If you've ever enjoyed the white wines of France's Rhône Valley, then you've probably inhaled the intoxicating honeysuckle and almond perfume of Marsanne. Most often blended with Roussanne and, increasingly, Viognier, Marsanne adds body and perfume to the wines of St-Joseph, Crozes-Hermitage, Hermitage and St-Péray. It also planted in small amounts in Australia and the United States, where California's Rhône Rangers have embraced it. Aliases include Ermitage, Hermitage Blanc, Marsana and Grosse Roussette.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
