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 2008 : After a beautiful spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again from the end of August with much sun and a cold wind, which aided concentration of flavours. The harvest commenced in mid-September in perfect conditions under an Indian summer.
Tasting : Pale gold colour. Floral fragrances mixed with citrus fruit enhanced by a delicate minerality. Well-structured and well-crafted. Very pure fruit underlined by a well-shaped acidity. Refreshing aftertaste.
Food pairing : Charcuteries, sea-food, fish, snails as well as some goat cheeses.
