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.

St-Veran has been recognised as Cru du Mâconnais since 1971 and it is divided between several villages in southern Burgundy. Château-Fuissé's Saint-Véran comes, in part, from the north of the appellation in the village of Davayé. Grapes are also sourced from vineyards in the southern part of the region around Chasselas. This Saint-Véran is complex and well structured thanks to the complementary nature of these two terroirs: the southern grapes bring minerality and elegance and their northern counterparts supply the power and the richness.

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.
