Joseph Drouhin Saint Veran 2012 750ml

Joseph Drouhin Saint Veran

A wine that smiles and makes you smile! It is stylistically close to Pouilly-Fuissé, with its golden hue, its greenish reflection and its refreshing taste. The aromas are reminiscent of the ripe Chardonnay grape, with subtle notes of musk. A pleasant roundness coats the palate.

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.

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.

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.
