Minerally, earthy, ripe, medium-body white.
Region: France> Burgundy> Macon> Saint-Veran.
Notes: Oak barrel aging. Single vineyard.
Rich, honey-toned flavors with mineral and earthy notes. Fully ripe Chardonnay was hand-harvested from single vineyard Les Chenes (Oak) in Village de Davaye. Aged in 2-years-old oak barrels, it is soft, fleshy, concentrated and complex, and is a good example of how good Saint-Veran really is. This small Pouilly-Fuissé-based domaine is run by the brothers Jean-Pierre and Michel Auvigue, who are the third generation of their family to produce wine in the Mâcon heartland. To allow each parcel to remain true to itself, the bothers always adapt the vinification process to the climate.
Food Pairing: Recipes based on cream or butter, chicken, charcuterie, cheeses.
