Grape Variety : Chardonnay
Soil : Clay and limestone
Site : The Saint Véran vineyards are located in the very South of the Maconnais area on the communes of Saint Vérand, Chânes, Chasselas, Leynes, Prissé and Davayé.
The Vintage 2007 : After a very warm spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a north wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer. Careful selection of grapes in the vineyard and winery have produced well-balanced and very pure white wines.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Aromas of exotic fruit mixed with yellow fruit. Delicate minerality. Well-balanced and well-structured. Well-integrated minerality and beautiful aromatic combination. Generous finish.
Food pairing : Charcuteries, sea-food, fish, snails as well as some goat cheeses.
