Saint Péray Mousseux Brut: Domaine Biguet

Made from pure Marsanne that is bottle-fermented in the méthode traditionelle, then hand-riddled in wooden
pupitres.

Like many good sparkling wines, it will cellar well for a year or two and makes a cracking accompaniment to
canapés - smoked salmon or gougères would be ideal.

  • Style: White Wine, Dry (Sec), Medium-bodied, Sparkling
  • Region: RhoneSaint Peray
  • Producer: Domaine Biguet (Jean-Louis Thiers)

Brilliant value for money; made in a Champagne style and better than some at twice the price.

What others think of this wine...

Jamie Goode - Daily Express, 22nd June 2014. says:

Made with marsanne grapes from 25-year-old vines grown on steep limestone slopes, this has a full yellow colour and lovely rich flavours of nuts, herbs and fennel, together with ripe pear and apple fruit, plus a hint of apricot.

Victoria Moore - Telegraph Weekend, 11/08/2012. says:

Marsanne is an awesome grape, but little known and in effervescent form as here it is still more rare. Think peaches, almonds and a swirl of citrus. No need to be a wine bore. "A little something I picked up. The chef Rowley Leigh served it at his wedding, so if it's good enough for him..."

Jonathan Ray - The Field Magazine, April 2012. says:

This is a first-rate, 100% marsanne sparkler from the northern Rhône.

Victoria Moore in The Guardian Weekend says:

A delicious, sculpted, sparkling wine that is already on Le Café Anglais's list.

JS (customer review) says:

Best sparkle I have ever tasted - none of the soapiness of prosecco, over-minerality of cava nor expense of champagne.
