Laurent Dufouleur Saint Véran
Located in the most southern part of Burgundy, the village of Saint-Vérand lies less than 5 miles away from the one of Pouilly-Fuissé, whose wines are known throughout the world. While the village is called “Saint-Vérand”, the wines sold under the name omit the final d, taking the name “Saint-Véran”. These wines can come from the terroirs of Chânes, Chasselas, Davayé, Leyne, Prissé, Solutré-Pouilly, and Saint-Vérand of course. In our winery, Laurent Dufouleur loves those wines which express the best of the Chardonnay grape on one of its native terroirs.
A pale yellow-gold color with a fresh and subtle nose of white fruits and acacia. On the palate, a fruity and good attack with aromas of peach blossoms. Dry white wine with a good acidity balance and a fruity and long finish.
It is best drunk fresh at 8-10 degrees Celsius as an aperitif or with seafood, mushrooms, or goat cheese.
- Soil: Clayed limestone
- Classification: AOC Saint Véran – Village appellation
The bunches are quickly pressed and the juice is put in a stainless-steel vat for maceration for 10 days. The wine is left to age in old oak barrels for a few months, with lees being stirred once a week to add some structure and richness to the wine. It is then bottled and left to age in our cellars cut into the rocks for a few more months.
