Chateau-Fuisse St-Veran is a green-golden colour, brilliant and clean. A fresh and flattering nose with hints of vanilla, lime citrus, apples and a suggestion of slightly more exotic fruits. Round and refreshing in the mouth, fruity, crisp and ripe with nice minerality and a good structure at the finish. Fresh, fruity and balanced, with a delicate toasty smokiness derived from its time resting on its lees.

The soils are calcareous clay and the vines are approximately 20 years old. This Château-Fuissé Saint-Véran is vinified in stainless steel vats to preserve the purity of fruit, floral notes and minerality. Batonnage is practised to promote autolysis and to enhance the weight and richness of the wine. Each parcel of fruit is vinified separately and the final blend is assembled by the winemaker after numerous tastings. Once blended, the wine remains in stainless steel tanks until it is bottled.
