Joseph Drouhin Saint Veran 2014

Joseph Drouhin Saint Veran 750ML 2014   
Sku: 301594

A wine lover travelling through Burgundy would expect, after Pouilly-Fuissé, to be in the Beaujolais area. Not so fast ! The lovely village of Saint-Vérand (note the different spelling !), wedged between these two areas, is half hidden among the hills. Established by decree on January 6th 1971, it is the latest appellation in the Mâconnais region. Its Jurassic chalky soil, a continuation of the limestone strata found in the Côte d`Or, is ideal for growing Chardonnay grapes. Picked by hand, the grapes (100% Chardonnay) are gently pressed. The juice ferments and is aged in oak barrels, with a very small percentage of new oak so as not to overwhelm the wine.

Tasting notes
Saint-Véran is very close stylistically to Pouilly-Fuissé, with its golden green hue, its intense fruity, flowery nose and its refreshing flavours. It can be enjoyed very young, two to three months after bottling. Yet, give it one or two more years to fully appreciate its complexity.

Technical notes
Site: at the southern end of Burgundy, just north of Beaujolais. The appellation Saint-Veran is actually larger than the territory of the commune. History & tradition: the actual village of Saint-Verand is spelled differently (note the final ”d”). Established by decree in 1971, it is the latest appellation in the Maconnais region. Soil: Jurassic limestone, a continuation of the chalky strata found in the Cote d’Or, ideal for growing Chardonnay grapes.

Food pairing
11 to 13oC is the correct temperature to serve a Saint-Véran. It marries well with hors-d`oeuvre, delicately flavoured charcuterie, oysters, mussels and any other shellfish.
