The beautiful white wines from the northern Rhône are mainly found in the good restaurants in and around the nearby Lyon. Here they have a great reputation as gourmet wines. Like this beautiful saint-péray, the southernmost cru of the northern Rhône, just next to Cornas. Lime and granite in the terraced vineyards provide a special terroir expression of the marsh and rousseed grapes planted here. The Durand brothers use 35% oak for their white wine. They do this in a controlled and restrained way, without toast flavoring. Here the wood aging gives a nice support that fully reflects the special aromas of both grapes. This is reminiscent of a beautiful white burgundy: full, powerful and long and intense in taste, with a tempting creaminess.
