2017 Domaine Johann Michel Saint Peray Blanc - 92 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2017 Saint-Péray Blanc from Michel checks in as an even split of Marsanne and Roussanne that was brought up all in neutral oak. It’s an outstanding wine as well as a terrific value. Notes of orchard fruits, honeyed minerality, white flowers, and hints of brioche all give way to a medium to full-bodied concentrated, yet elegant Saint-Péray that has good acidity, notable balance, and a great finish. Drink it any time over the coming decade."

2018 Domaine Johann Michel Saint Peray Blanc - 91 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Starting with the two whites from the young yet talented Johann Michel, the 2018 Saint-Péray has an exotic, sappy, green edge as well as notes of white currants, brioche, and honeyed minerality, with even a hint of mint. Medium-bodied, balanced, and concentrated, with a kiss of salinity, it’s a classic Saint Péray to enjoy over the coming 2-4 years."

"Touches of vanilla and resin accent flavors of cantaloupe and pressed yellow apple in this 50/50 blend of Marsanne and Roussanne matured nine months in French oak. Full bodied and broad on the palate, it's brightened by tangerine acidity and a spicy finish marked by candied orange peel and bourbon spice. At peak now through 2024, the wine could hit a second stride from around 2030. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"

2019 Domaine Johann Michel Saint Peray Blanc - 93 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The base 2019 Saint-Péray is brilliant and offers a gorgeous perfume of ripe apple and white currant fruits as well as mint and sappy white flowers, with ample background toast and nuttiness. Medium-bodied and concentrated, with both good acidity and a great mouthfeel, it's going to drink well for at least 5-7 years, most likely over a decade."

2021 Domaine Johann Michel Saint Peray Blanc - 92 PTS - DECANTER

decanter logo 250"Aniseed, tarragon, lemon verbena aromas. It’s fresh, with vibrant acidity. A really focused and vivid style of St-Péray. Well balanced oak work, and good length. From southeast-facing slopes at 280m altitude. Fairly young vines planted on sandy, silty clay soils. Vinified in stainless steel, then aged in three to four-year-old barrels for nine months. - Matt WALLS"

2021 Domaine Johann Michel Saint Peray Blanc - 94 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"I loved the 2021 Saint-Péray, a richer, more serious effort from this appellation that is undeniably on the uptick. Honeyed orange, tropical fruits, green almond, and some classy oak all define the nose, and it's medium-bodied, has a layered, round texture, integrated acidity, and a great finish. Give it a year."
