DOMAINE DU TUNNEL

LVT 2014 r 2016 wh A domaine of undoubted promise, with some STGT leanings in the wines. The wines come in an elegant fashion, with genuine textures and an emphasis on pleasure in the drinking. The Saint-Pérays - four of them - are agreeable both on their own and with food, although some New Wave tendencies have been noted in the 2010s. The Saint-Péray Roussanne was the top 2015 at ****(*), a muscled wine, while the 2016 Saint-Péray  Prestige was a stylish, classy ****(*) wine,  the 2016 Saint-PérayMarsanne a suave, restrained **** wine. The regular Cornas became lighter and more modern since the early 2010s, while the Vin Noir was best to drink from three to four years on. There is now just one Cornas, which is suitablly well-bodied. The St-Joseph is a soft wine, accessible early on. Rental agreements mean that Stéphane Robert now has access to old vineyards, boosting the set of young vines that he has laboured hard to plant since his arrival at St-Péray in 1993-94.
