Joseph Drouhin St Veran 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Maconnais|
The 2020 wines display an intense gold colour with a nice shiny aspect. The nose is aromatic, mixing both white flowers and fruit such as peach. This seduction is also found on the palate with ample wines on a nice structure and it makes them very pleasant in their youth.
The 2020 Saint-Veran has a charming, quite floral bouquet with peony and buttercup complementing the yellow plum and lemon zest. Utterly charming. The palate is well balanced with fine acidity, maybe not as complex as the aromatic augur, though it retains decent precision on the finish. Fine, but maybe it could have been there even better? Tasted blind at the BIVB Maconnais tasting.
A clean, light-bodied white, with lemon and apple flavors picking up a hint of almond. Drink now. 8,500 cases imported.
