White wine. Mâconnais, Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Chardonnay. "The 2018 Saint-Véran “en Crêches” from the Saumaize family is their younger vine bottling from this appellation (they have a Vieilles Vignes cuvée that is made from vines in excess of fifty years of age), but the vines here are still between ten and thirty years-old, so it is not comprised solely of younger vine fruit. The 2018 version is very stylish on the nose, wafting from the glass in a vibrant mix of apple, a hint of tangerine, chalky soil tones, citrus zest, spring flowers and a bit of buttery oak. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and nicely wide open in personality, with a good core, a fine base of soil, bouncy acids and good length and grip on the complex finish. Good juice." —89+ Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #86 (March/April 2020)
