High-end northern Rhone white: Domaine du Tunnel St Peray

This is quite special, but it could probably do with a couple more years to loosen up. Saint-Peray is one of the forgotten appellations of the northern Rhone, and this is a varietal Roussanne that shows just how good it can be, in the right hands.

Stephane Robert Domaine du Tunnel Saint-Peray Roussanne 2007 Northern Rhone, France
13% alcohol. Intense, nutty and toasty with pear, peach and spice notes, as well as some citrus pith and straw character. Quite rich and textured, with the potential to develop. 92/100 (Berry Bros & Rudd, but they have very limited, perhaps now zero stock, c. £20)
