LVT 2019 r 2019 wh A Saint-Péray family who were all Co-operateurs at the Cave de Tain until Rémy’s first vintage in 2008, not a great year, with a Saint-Péray. His brother [even though he makes no wine, and has just a few vines, is more on fruit] is President of the Syndicat des Vignerons de Saint-Péray, and still sends his crop to the Cave de Tain. This has become a good, even very good address, across his range, with the Saint-Péray, three of them, plus a sparkling, leading the way. A Crozes-Hermitage from 1.7 hectares at Pont de l’Isère started in 2010. Half the harvest is sold to the merchant trade.
The better Saint-Pérays have been La Beylesse and Le Suchat, the latter mainly 1936 Marsanne, expensive but good, a proper table wine, a really good ****(*) in 2019, for example. However, in the heated vintage of 2018, the Classique Saint-Péray did well, a **** wine. There are more limestone influences here than most at Saint-Péray (and Saint-Joseph). The first Cornas from 2010 Syrah on Les Eygas was made in 2014, a very creditable effort. The Crozes-Hermitage Le Mazel red [1980s Syrah] is good, the 2017 a **** wine of fine detail.
