Domaine Croix Senaillet, Saint-Véran, from Stéphane & Richard Martin.
At the Very Southernmost part of Burgundy, by a Town called Saint Vérand (note the ‘d’ at the end - They changed the name to stop the English pronouncing a silent ‘d’, but neglected to realise the English would could continue to butcher the name by pronouncing the silent ‘n’). Here, between two large hills is a suntrap that ripens Chardonnay grapes into rich, ripe stone fruit flavoured wines.
This is a fun, fruit forward yet elegant Chardonnay - ripe peach and apricot aromas, with a rich, creamy texture.
