The 2011 Alain Voge Saint-Peray Fleur de Crussol is a single grape variety wine made of Marsanne. With a good orientation to the south and calcareous-clay soils or granitic soils rich in limestone, this plot located in the heart of the appellation is the perfect place for the cultivation of very old (70 years old) Marsanne vines. The 2011 Alain Voge Saint-Peray Fleur de Crussol has entirely aged in oak barrels (1/3 new barrels) and has aged on lees for 16 months. This wine is a real outburst of minerality and releases a good aromatic complexity. One can detect delicate notes of nectarine, tangerine, quince and white flowers. The palate is bold and fleshy.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
From a vintage that had big yields, the 2011 St Peray Fleur de Crussol is Chardonnay-like with its apple blossom, brioche, tropical fruits and spice-laced bouquet. Still lively and fresh, with juicy acidity, it's a classy, balanced white to drink over the coming 7-8 years.
