Saint-Véran Château-Fuissé 2020

This monopole of 1.8 hectares is situated between Les Rontets and the premier cru Les Perrières, exposed to the east and north at 280m elevation. The site has more limestone than clay, and the stony character comes out in the wine, with a bright, lemony fruit aroma with notes of mint and licorice. The texture is silky but still substantial. The wine is fermented in used casks and matured over two winters to deliver a wine of great finesse.
