About Maison Verget St. Veran
The product of vines with an average age of 50 years, with clay-limestone soil and very stony. This cuvée is vinified in barrels (20% new wood) before maturing for around four months. In tasting the wine delivers superb freshness, citrus aromas and toasted notes. The 2018 Saint Veran Vigne de Saint Claude comes from 50-year-old vines in vineyards close to Vergisson and is matured in 25% new oak. It has a very pure bouquet of peach, apricot blossom and pralines, the oak beautifully enmeshed.
Tasting Notes: The very well-balanced palate displays a fine bead of acidity, a waxy texture and a hint of reduction toward the almost Meursault-like finish. Very primary and pure, this is all about the fleshy fruit that lingers through to the long finish. Smoky on the nose, with toasted cereals and white peach to the fore. Oily and rich on the palate, there is a hint of tropical fruit to go with the peach and pear at the core.
