St-Véran

50 years

Grapes coming from vines which are situated on the appellation of Saint Véran. Region of the Mâconnais. Soil: clay and limestone. Grapes variety: Chardonnay. Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

Grapes are harvested by hand, sorted out when picking the grapes and on our sorting table. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction.

After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 500 liters (10% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts and aged during 11 months. During this time, we did the stirring of the lees in the barrels. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling it according to the lunar calendar ("fruit” day).

Very lively wine, aromatically rich with mostly floral and fruity notes and very much freshness in mouth. Typical from the mâconnais region

"apéritif", fish, white meat
