Domaine Michael Chavet & Fils, Saint-Veran 2020
Ripe apple aromas on the nose, excellent fresh but balanced mid palate. Very rewarding wine with beautiful elegant summer freshness. Pair with simpler fish and poultry dishes although this also has the guts to stand up to pork if you don't fancy a red.
The vines, which average around 35 years old, are planted on stoney, clay-limestone soils facing south-east to south-west. The planting density is an unusually high 8,000 vines per hectare. After picking, a stringent selection and gentle pressing, the wine is simply fermented in cuvee at around 18 degrees C for 6-7 weeks. Once the alcoholic and malolactic fermentations are completed, the wine spends a further 4-5 months in cuvee, sur lie, prior to bottling the following spring.
Situated in Davaye, at the foot of the rock of Solutre, the Chavet family have 12 hectares under vine, 10 of which are in the appellation of St Veran. The current custodian, Christophe, is the sixth generation of Chavets to manage the Domaine.
