Wine AdvocateThe only white wine chez Clape is the 2016 Saint Peray. From a single hectare, it's a blend of 70% Marsanne and 30% Roussanne. It shows plenty of spice-clove and pepper-to go along with ripe, honeyed fruit and citrus zest. It seems fresh yet nutty at the same time, an intriguing juxtaposition.
