Saint-Véran Mâconnais, Le Clos Vessats 2017, Domaine Guerrin

February 9, 2018

Chardonnay

Saint-Véran is one of those places that knowledgeable French wine drinkers go to buy quality white Burgundy at a sensible price. Le Clos Vessats, a ” lieu-dits” or named place, is a clay/limestone plot facing due south so that the grapes are always very ripe when harvested producing rich, fruity and tempting wines!
The vinification is carried out in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve all the freshness and delicacy of the Chardonnay grapes. It is then aged for nine months but sees no oak before gentle filtration and bottling. A very expressive wine revealing aromas of citrus and white flowers , notably acacia. Fresh, clean, fruity with notes of pear, peach and hazelnut and a long, biting finish. In essence a real un-oaked Chardonnay!
This wine makes an excellent aperitif due to it’s crisp fruit but also makes a great match for fish and white meats like veal or chicken!
A class act and the real deal for Chardonnay lovers!
