Tasting Notes

Handy half bottles of Burgundy from the St Véran appellation in the Mâconnais area; it's a fresh style of Chardonnay, not your usual rich and creamy Burgundy. I also sell this wine in 75cl bottles; click here to see the full bottles and to read details of the wine and producer.

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.

Awards

16 points   Jancis Robinson     Jan 2018
"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
