This luscious, creamy peach white is from Stéphane Robert, whose wines are characterised by their intense pure fruit. It’s from Saint-Péray – a small, little known northern Rhône appellation, just south of Cornas, that produces real gem whites.

In 1994, at just 24, Stéphane Robert began to build his domaine, from nothing! He started by leasing vines, then gradually bought up a few parcels, so that now he has 11 hectares in Saint-Péray, Saint-Joseph, Cornas, Condrieu and also Côtes du Rhône. He champions Syrah for his reds, Marsanne, Roussanne and Viognier for whites. Old vines and granite soils are all important to him and in 2014 he built a new winery (in an old steam train tunnel, hence the domaine's name!) to take quality higher. This is his pure Marsanne Saint-Péray (he also does a Roussanne), fermented and aged in vat, with no oak. Rounded, peachy fruit zipped by mineral, citrus intensity, this is a classy, well-balanced white. Pair with creamy sauced fish or spinach roulade.
