” A forward and expressive peachy fruit style from near neighbour to Pouilly Fuissé. Gentle oak, soft and creamy with plenty body and texture.”
2015 Saint-Véran, Terres Noires, Domaine des Deux Roches
Saint-Véran is a village in the heart of the Mâconnais, which lies between the escarpments of Solutré and Vergisson. Its vineyards are among the few in Burgundy with a south/south-easterly aspect, which exposes the vines to maximum sunlight and warmth. ‘Terres Noires’ is a single vineyard on the south-side of the landmark rock of Solutré, with limestone mixed with a black decomposed rock; exposure to sunshine and winds that help to moderate temperatures, aiding the ripening process.
Produced by Jean-Luc Terrier and Christian Collovray, this wine is translucent gold in colour with a beautifully balanced aroma of fruits and flowers. It displays notes of apples and lemons with floral hints, while a mineral character compliments its fruitiness on the palate.
We recommend pairing with oily fish or seafood due its minerality. Its citrus flavours make it ideal for white meat, such as veal or poultry, accompanied by cream sauces, as well as creamy seafood and mushroom risottos. This wine also lends itself beautifully to various cheeses, including Comté, Gruyere and goat’s cheese.
