This wine comes to us from Saint Peray, just at the southern tip of the Northern Rhone Valley, where only a total of 130 acres of grapes are planted, primarily to Marsanne. Sourced from one of France’s greatest wine negociants, the 2010 bottling of this wine scored 91 and 92 points from both Robert Parker and Steve Tanzer. Lot 353 is capable of serious longevity in your cellar (10 years or more) but I encourage you to enjoy it young and fresh and watch its evolution. 300 cases produced.
Creamy and delicious!
This is a gorgeous wine... Drinking this in July '13, so maybe it's added some weight since that negative review... I'm getting a beautiful nose of tropical fruits and honeysuckle. Nice acidity with a splash of lemon curd and sweet cream on the palate. For people looking for an alternative to the same old Chard, SB, Pinot Grigio, give this a try! I need to jump on some more of this while its still in stock!
Longing for Lyon
Drinking this wine takes me back to a work assignment I had in Lyon back in 2011. Condrieu was all the buzz and tasting was believing. However, think of this St. Peray Blanc as a "poor man's Condrieu." On second thought, for $14 (vs. $50+ for a decent Condrieu) you'll be the wiser for choosing Lot 353.
Classic full mouthfeel and a hint of sweetness marks this white Rhone. A subtle yet crisp acidity gives this an interesting bite that broadens the food pairing options.
A wonderfully nuanced and floral wine...c'est magnifique!

Gets the job done
Vibrant color. Bright citrus and oaky nose. A bit sweet with an acidic finish. A soft ripe cheese paired well, helped to balance acidity.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend
A nice wine, but the taste (initially) does not meet the expecations from Cameron's descriptions. Very dry, almost to the point of bitterness. There are some floral notes on the nose, but really very subdued. This is a decent wine--and not a bad buy--but somehow I'm missing the magic the the descriptions promised. I will keep tasting and still am optimistic, but am not sold yet.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
For several years, I have abstained from buying anything French (with the exception of tires, as my wife reminds me!) That was a mistake, Lot 353, with it's beautiful color and exquisite taste shows me what I have missed. Viva La France! Get this one before its gone
