Description

Located in the southern tip of Mâconnais, in a peaceful hilly landscape, the Saint-Véran appellation circles the Pouilly-Fuissé vineyard, dominated by the Roche de Solutré. The hillsides' East exposure protects the vines from a West wind and offers plenty of sunshine to the vineyard for a fruity, ripe and well-balanced wine. The soil is made up of crinoidal limestone covered by thin layers of clay, perfect for Chardonnay grape. The village of Saint Vérand takes its name from the Bishop Saint-Véran of Cavaillon who served on the Council of Mâcon.

Winemaking

Stainless steel for 8-10 months with control of temperatures. 100% malolactic fermentation.

Tasting note

Our Saint-Véran 2011 reveals a gorgeous pale golden color. The aromas of white and yellow fruits mix perfectly with charming notes of hazelnut and toasted almond. A subtle touch of honeysuckle well-balances this wine. Our Saint-Véran has a bright and expressive attack. A lovely minerality finishes this round and full-bodied backbone wine.
