The Saint Véran appellation is on the southern edge of the Mâconnais area of southern Burgundy and all of its wines age well. Domaine Corsin is currently run by the fifth generation of the same family that began with just two hectares in the late 19th century. Now with 13.6 hectares, Domaine Corsin uses the know-how passed down the generations to produce beautiful Chardonnay like this one. Old vines and the clay-limestone soils give the wine complexity though its complex aromas and flavours are elegant and subtle rather than intense. Just 35% of the wine is aged in oak and so the oak influence is more evident in the medium body and texture of the wine rather than in the flavour.
This wine is lovely and fresh with white peach and pear flavours, a hint of pineapple and some mineral notes; citrus kicks in at the end with a lovely lime-flavoured finish that leave the mouth watering. If served too cold, this wine may hide its beautiful flavours; slurp in some air to help them emerge. Enjoy!
