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 2017 : After a cold winter, spring started with a mix of cold and warm episodes. May and June were quite warm. Summer was warm with several heat waves which brought stormy episodes at the right moment. This enabled the vineyards to follow their normal biological cycle. The harvest started early September, in outstanding conditions with grapes fully ripe and healthy. The white wines are well-balanced and precise.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with very fresh aromas of citrus fruit underlined by a hint of minerality. Well-structured, precise with a very pure fruit. Well integrated minerality. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Charcuteries, sea-food, fish, snails as well as some goat cheeses.
