Domaine Saine Germain Persan Rouge 2013, Savoie, France

Country: France

Colour / Style: White

Alternative selection for: Episode 4

As recommended by: Joe Fattorini

Persan almost died out in France in the great Phylloxera blight of the nineteeth century, but now this rustic, plum and cranberry scented wine is enjoying a modest revival. It’s hearty rather than refined and all the better for it, making a fresh unoaked wine great for mid-week stews and rustic flavours.
