2017 Guy Farge "Grain de Silex" Saint-Péray

SKU #1377649 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark An unusual blend of 90% Roussanne with 10% Marsanne, the 2017 Saint Peray Grain de Silex is a perennial star. Honeyed orange marmalade on the nose pick up hints of melon and citrus on the fresh, lively finish. Medium to full-bodied, it's weighty on the palate yet turns zesty and refreshing on the finish. (JC) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

Outer quote mark The 2017 Saint-Péray Grain De Silex is good value and is predominantly Roussanne with 10% Marsanne. It offers lively spiced citrus, lemon, and sappy green herbs notes as well as a vibrant, medium-bodied, balanced style on the palate. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

K&L Notes

Guy Farge took over the management of his family estate in 1980. Originally, he sold his fruit to the Cave de Tain (where he worked) and then to Delas. In 2007, he began producing wines under his own label. Each year, the wines have grown and evolved as has Guy's winemaking prowess. Now working with his son Thomas, each bottling represents some of the best we have seen from his primarily granitic terroirs. The "Grain de Silex" is the only wine not on granitic soils though. It comes from Saint-Peray which is south of Cornas and more famous for its clay and limestone. It is a blend of 90% Roussanne and 10% Marsanne fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged in stainless steel tanks. It is a white wine of finesse with subtle flavors of apricots, jasmine, and flint.
