– Situated in the very South of the Mâconnais, the Saint-Véran vineyards form a gilded belt around Pouilly-Fuissé. The two are similar in terms of relief and production techniques, even in their actual taste and fragrance. The area’s Jurassic chalk soil and the vineyard’s ideal exposure combine perfectly to produce top quality fruit. Saint-Véran « Les Deux Moulins » takes its name from the two watermills that straddle La Petite Grosne river. The rain that falls on the vineyards, filters through the calcareous bedrock to help feed the river as it flows away west towards the famous monastic town of Cluny. Once harvested, the grapes are fermented in stainless steel in order to preserve the freshness of the fruit. A slow, cool fermentation allows the wine to maintain its rich and concentrated flavours.
– This Saint-Véran “Les Deux Moulins” 2016 is of an elegant pale yellow color and offers a delicate nose of fresh almond, laced with subtle notes of honeysuckle. On tasting, the wine is gourmet with aromas of almond and hazelnut. Beautiful freshness on the finish.
