Any wine which carries the Louis Jadot label must of necessity be produced to the most exacting standards. Vines are carefully pruned during the dormant phase of winter, so crucial to regulating yields and optimizing quality. Louis Jadot believes that the only way to truly respect grapes is to harvest by hand. On the sorting table, only the ripest and healthiest are selected. Chardonnay is fermented slowly in Burgundian casks of 228 litres called pieces. The vineyards at Saint Veran are planted predominately to very stony, limestone soils. Harmony between earth and vine is the key, the finished wine is bottled the following spring to age and evolve ever so sightly, yet retain essential vibrancy and freshness.
Pale straw gold colour. Creamy nose, savoury stonefruit characters, pebbles and oyster shell, vanilla cashew notes. Very dry, delicate and youthful palate, subtle nutty flavours, mealyness and brine, a layered, textural roundness before a lingering, aromatic finish. Refreshing as an aperitif, Macon Saint Veran is also a superb accompaniment to hors d'oeuvre, delicately flavoured charcuterie, oysters, seafood and snails.
