Saint-Péray: Domaine Rémy Nodin 'Coteau de la Beylesse' 2022
"Full yellow robe; the nose has a quiet air of greengage plum, a cool, lime cordial siding, suggests Marsanne with a mild elegance, carries oak. The palate is soft from the start, finely tuned, the second half precise and nimble, gives good drinking, solo included. A hint of carbonic gas peps up the lightly oaked finale. It carries detail, and is a neat, attractive, en finesse operator, a w.o.w. wine. 4/5 Stars."
John Livingstone-Learmonth - drinkrhone.com
This 100% organic Marsanne 'Coteaux de la Beylesse' is sourced from vines planted in 1985 on south/east-facing limestone-clay higher terraces of around 1.2 hectares around 'La Beylesse' farmhouse – the only area in the appellation to have limestone over granite. With a rich orchard fruit nose and stone-fruited palate, mineral and almond notes and fresh acidity give a concentrated, lush finish.

Domaine Rémy Nodin
The oldest estate in Saint-Péray, Domaine Rémy Nodin is based around its fortified farmhouse 'La Beylesse'. Lying at the foot of the limestone escarpment crowned by the medieval ruined castle of Crussol, Rémy and Amandine Nodin are the fourth generation of the family to grow grapes on this site. Former co-operateurs, they brought winemaking back to the Domaine with their first vintage in 2008. They have a small flock of sheep to keep weeds and undergrowth under control plus provide natural fertilizer and have been certified organic since the 2022 vintage. With small parcels of vines in Cornas, Saint-Péray, Saint-Joseph and Crozes-Hermitage, they make various cuvées of red, white and sparkling white from Syrah, Marsanne and Roussanne. Decanter Rhône expert Matt Walls called it 'an estate to watch.'
