St-Veran has been recognised as a Cru du Mâconnais since 1971 and it is divided between several villages in southern Burgundy. Château-Fuissé`s Saint-Véran comes, in part, from the north of the appellation in the village of Davayé. Grapes are also sourced from vineyards in the southern part of the region around Chasselas. This Saint-Véran is complex and well-structured thanks to the complementary nature of these two terroirs: the southern grapes bring minerality and elegance and their northern counterparts supply the power and the richness.

The soils are calcareous clay and the vines are approximately 20 years old. This Château-Fuissé Saint-Véran is vinified in stainless steel vats to preserve the purity of fruit, floral notes and minerality. Batonnage is practised to promote autolysis and to enhance the weight and richness of the wine. Each parcel of fruit is vinified separately and the final blend is assembled by the winemaker after numerous tastings. Once blended, the wine remains in stainless steel tanks until it is bottled.

Tasting Notes:  Has a green-golden colour, bril­liant and clean. A fresh and flattering nose with hints of vanilla, lime citrus, apples and a suggestion of slightly more exotic fruits. Round and refreshing in the mouth, fruity, crisp and ripe with nice min­erality and a good struc­ture at the fin­ish. Fresh, fruity and balanced, with a delicate toasty smokiness derived from its time resting on its lees.

Food Pairing: Chicken, pork or fish

The Grape
Chardonnay is the "Big Daddy" of white wine grapes and one of the most widely planted in the world. It is suited to a wide variety of soils, though it excels in soils with a high limestone content as found in Champagne, Chablis, and the Côte D`Or.

Burgundy is Chardonnay`s spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvelous poise, elegance and balance. They are unquestionably the finest dry white wines in the world. Chardonnay plays a crucial role in the Champagne blend, providing structure and finesse, and is the sole grape in Blanc de Blancs.

It is quantitatively important in California and Australia, is widely planted in Chile and South Africa, and is the second most widely planted grape in New Zealand. In warm climates Chardonnay has a tendency to develop very high sugar levels during the final stages of ripening and this can occur at the expense of acidity. Late picking is a common problem and can result in blowsy and flabby wines that lack structure and definition.

Recently in the New World, we have seen a move towards more elegant, better- balanced and less oak-driven Chardonnays, and this is to be welcomed.
