Tasting Notes

The story

The Saint Véran appellation is on the southern edge of the Mâconnais area of southern Burgundy and is a much under-rated appellation.
Located in Prissé in Saône-et-Loire this Domaine has been run for the last 20 years by Lucien Thomas and by his father and grandfather before him. During this time the Domaine has grown in size from 10 to 19 hectares under vine. Working methods have changed and are now aimed at lower yields. Lucien follows sustainable agriculture principles. The soils in the vineyards are very similar to those of Pouilly Fuissé.
The resulting Saint Véran is a magnificent wine - pure, precise and perfectly balanced.

The wine

Unusually for a Mâconnais Burgundy this wine has not been aged or fermented in oak but in stainless steel to achieve fruit characteristics and a fresh style.
Full tasting note coming soon. Read what and the producer have to say about it below. I also sell this wine in half bottles.

Food Pairing

Recommended for drinking with fish, seafood including scallops, foie gras, roast chicken, ham, pork, veal, creamy sauces, parmesan cheese, mushrooms, truffle. Generally it is not so good with other cheeses, tomato-based sauces, Chinese food, Thai food and, though it has the body to stand up to many of them, curries.

Producer's Notes

"Open on the nose, with peach and lemon aromas which are found again on the palate. Honest and crisp on entry to the palate, good length. Bright, light gold hue. Promising on the nose, with a mixture of white fruit, a vegetal note and a hint of flint. Well-balanced on the palate, displaying a slender, fine, dynamic style, the epitome of elegance and moderation."

"Dusty, almost smoky nose. Tight, zesty, very crisp but still, just, in balance. Impressive length for such a streamlined wine."

From the fabulous 2016 vintage this white Burgundy from the Maconnais is a true expression of Saint Véran terroir & the Chardonnay grape; it's organically & sustainably produced
