It’s a Bourgogne Blanc, a white wine from Burgundy from Terres Secrètes, the Saint-Veran is a controlled appellation. 13% vol.
White wines are the strength of the Burgundy region: usually their white wines are exceptional.
This is one of the very rare white wines my parents have in their wine racks. We keep coming back to this one (in the past summers we have enjoyed it several times with fish or seafood and also pasta or omelette with summer truffle)
In the glass it is very pale yellow, almost colorless, a yellow leaning towards a greenish color though— a « cold » yellow.
Nose of green apple, gun flint (pierre à fusil), silex and it smells « dry ».
In the mouth it’s almost fizzy, dry. It tastes of apple, mainly green apple. It’s acid and slightly bitter but in a pleasant way. It has a pleasant bitterness as an aftertaste too.
Fizzy, green apple, pebble, gun flint and silex also in the middle mouth, then a fresh bitterness in finale.
Very fresh and extremely pleasant, a dry wine that we enjoyed with shrimp and zucchini lasagna this time.
Burgundy at its best.
