2014 Domaine Saint Roch Saint Veran

The Producer: Family owned Domaine of 24 acres located in the southern part of Burgundy. Today, Joan & Patrice Fortune manage the vineyards and produce the wine.

The Vineyards: The appellation SAINT-VÉRAN is split into two separate islands by its close relative Pouilly-Fuissé. Both occupy slopes forming part of the chain of hills to which the Rock of Solutré belongs. This rocky backbone is made of fossiliferous limestone of the Middle Jurassic. On the Western side are older (lias) rocks covered with grey marls on which the vineyards of Chasselas and Leynes occupy South and West-facing sites. The gentle Eastern slopes are composed of marly limestones on which are found the East-facing vineyards of Prissé and Davayé. At Chânes and Prissé, on the left bank of the little river Grosne, the vines grow on fossiliferous limestones, often overlain by a layer of clay-with-flints with chailles”.

Aging: Traditional fermentation for 10 days in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Then aged for six months in French Oak barrels.

Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

Winemaker's Notes: Very close stylistically to Pouilly-Fuisse’ with its intense floral bouquet and its refreshing flavors. On the palate it is very fruit-forward with fresh golden apple flavors. A hint of honey and fresh apricot. Great refreshing finish. We recommend to serve this wine chilled and pull the cork 20 minutes before serving to enjoy this wine at its best.
