Winery Tasting Notes

Grape Variety

Chardonnay 100%

Colour

The colour is a beautiful white gold, with a ravishing purity and brilliance.

Aroma

The aromas are fresh and fruity, with nuances of broom shrub (genêt), almond and delicious preserved citrus notes.

Palate

Saint Véran is stylistically close to Pouilly-Fuissé. On the palate, it is fresh and elegant. A long and delicious aftertaste makes for a lasting impression.

Cellaring Potential

2 to 5 years.

Winemaking Note

Rully is the first village you encounter as you leave the southern part of the Côte d’Or. It is a lovely area, known as the Region of Mercurey (Côte Chalonnaise is another name for it).

The grapes are always picked by hand and then gently pressed. The juice ferments in barrels, a small percentage being of new oak. A few weeks after the malolactic fermentation is completed, the wine is racked off its lees and aged in barrels for 7to 8 months before being bottled.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Drouhin is one of Burgundy’s top-level negociants. More importantly it is one of Burgundy’s finest Domaines, owning some 25.9 hectares of vineyards from Puligny to Gevrey and 37.7 hectares in Chablis.

The Domaine plants 12,500 vines per ha - one of the highest densities in Burgundy - which encourages root-systems to delve deeper to compete for nutrients. "Those who love the Cote d’Or and its wines have much to thank Drouhin for." Remington Norman, The Great Domaines of Burgundy, 2000.
