2018 Guy Farge "Grain de Silex" Saint-Peray Blanc

SKU #1424128 90 points Decanter

Outer quote mark This is a concentrated style, with lemon and lime alongside mango. It’s powerful on the palate with sappy, mouthcoating flavour and a long finish that has a touch of citrus oil and lime pastille. A little bitter twist on the finish brings freshness. Not the most elegant Saint-Péray of the vintage, but plenty of interest, featuring a touch of raspberry on the finish, unexpectedly. Grapes grown on clay limestone, fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured mostly in vat, with a small proportion spending 2 months in new oak. (MW) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

Outer quote mark Lots of sappy herbs, lime zest, and spicy notes emerge from the 2018 Saint-Péray Grain De Silex. It’s medium to full-bodied, has good concentration, and a green edge, which I always find in this cuvée. The blend is 90% Roussanne and 10% Marsanne, brought up mostly in vat, with a small part in in new barrels for a short time. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

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.
