Saint-Veran Les Bayeux Cave de Chaintre 2016/2017
100% Chardonnay from a co-operative of vignerons established in the 1920s.
The fruit here comes from a single vineyard with a typical Saint-Veran geology of clay over limestone; producing a characterful wine of mineral complexity.
Fresh and delicate on the nose with subtle hints of lemon and white flowers. A rounded mouth feel accentuated by measured acidity.
