About this wine
After a couple of devastating vintages in Burgundy, we're stoked to have secured a parcel of the 2019 Saint-Veran from our *best* friends at Julien Collovray.
What Makes It So Grape?
Produced in Saint-Véran, France
Julien Collovray joined the family business as winemaker in 2008, having studied wine agriculture and oenology at university, as well as law and economics. Before joining his family’s domaine, he worked at vineyards in various French regions as well as in Virginia. These days he runs both the management of the vineyard and the marketing side of the business, and has set up the organic conversion of some of their vineyards.
The Domaine is among the largest and most progressive in the region, making Chardonnay of world-class quality and pushing the boundaries on the perceived limits of Mâconnais as a producer of white Burgundy. Grapes for the Saint- Véran are sourced from the oldest vines in the most prestigious vineyards of the appellation. The AOC system of wine control in France is currently contemplating giving the site where these grapes are grown Saint Veran 1er Cru status!
