Genetie Saint Veran, 2019
SKU: UFPB9564 | Category: White
'La Rencontre' translates from French as 'a
meeting of people'. Meeting people in our
business is important - the meeting of
winemakers and growers becomes a melting pot
of information and ideas. After a fortuitous
meeting with a grower where the wines were
simply fantastic - the alchemy and fun began,
in glorious Saint Véran.
How it's made
St Véran is an appellation that shares many similarities with it’s ‘big brother’ Pouilly Fuissé and some
of the best sites are situated on the foothills of two ‘rochers’ that are dominant features of the southern
Mâconnais country side - La Roche de Solutré and La Roche de Vergisson. Here the granitic sub soil
has its word to say and lends an elegant flinty edge to some quite tender Chardonnay. The wine has
undergone partial malolcatic fermentation, which gives the wine a subtle creamy texture, weight and
Will be a perfect accompaniment to pan seared scallops, crab, vichyssoise (a leek and potato based
soup), and dishes with a cream and lemon based sauce.
Classic chardonnay from the area offering some lovely fresh citrus notes of lemon peel, floral notes
with interesting exotic undertones. Finesse and purity meet and fuse…….
