100% Marsanne, 85+ year old vines
Biodynamic, From La Côte (granite, some limestone), lees stirred, malo completed, filtered.
“From the estate's oldest vines; aged for 16 months in 400-liter oak barrels, one-third of them new. Light vivid yellow. Nervy, mineral-accented orchard and pit fruit aromas show excellent clarity, and a suave floral element emerges slowly. Sappy, palate-staining pear nectar and white peach flavors are complicated by notes of violet, honey and orange pith. A minerally element adds vibrant lift and drives the finish, which hangs on with superb tenacity and a repeating floral quality."

"I always love this cuvée, and the 2015 Saint-Péray Fleur De Crussol might be the best yet. Brioche, honeycomb, crushed rock-like minerality and sautéed stone fruits give way to a rich, concentrated, beautifully textured white that has richness and freshness. Made from 100% Marsanne all from the La Côte lieu-dit, it spent 13 months in 30% new barrels."

"The barrel-fermented Marsanne 2015 Saint Peray Fleur de Crussol is a toasty wine, loaded with roast cashew notes and grilled pineapple. Full-bodied, broad and flavorful, it's a concentrated wine that coats the mouth with honeyed richness, lingering on the finish."

"Full yellow robe. The nose gives a tight essence of white fruits, dried fruits, has the sun-filled, closed shape of 2015. It's like a grapey essencia in the glass, resembles a red wine in its depth and closure, has vanilla pod from its oaking. The palate is also tight and meaningful, has inner strength, and really demands patient cellaring. It's concerted and serious, and will go well with a range of hearty flavours - don't be shy. The finish is broad and thorough. From spring 2018, and decant it."
