St Joseph Blanc Domaine Perret 2009

Tasted 14/11/12. 13.5%, cork closure, about £16 UK retail (e.g. Goedhuis). An unusual white wine from St. Joepsh. Made from Marsanne and Roussanne varietals, this is a fleshy, minerally, almost salty wine, rich and great with fish or roasted chicken or even game. Light golden colour, the nose is clean and a litte closed, with some pears or apricots,  like a young Chablis. But the palate is alive and full, with good weight, dry with a long finish. Notes of capsicum and melon lingers in the mouth. An interesting wine, worth a try. From 2013, 16/20
