Tasting Notes

Classic chardonnay from the area offering some lovely fresh citrus notes of lemon peel, floral notes with interesting exotic undertones. Finesse and purity meet and fuse……. Meeting people is important in the world of wine - the meeting of winemakers and growers becomes a melting pot of information and ideas. After a fortuitous meeting with a grower where the wines were simply fantastic - the alchemy and fun began, in glorious Saint Véran

Producer details

In the Mâconnais in southern Burgundy, wine maker Samantha Bailey crafts and blends wines which honestly express the tapestry of the local terroir. With a ‘back of the hand’ knowledge of the effect of each slope and soil type on a wine, the producers dared to imagine owning an estate, yet such opportunities are rare in Burgundy as domaines pass from one generation to the next. Finally they succeeded in buying two key plots in the best climats of Saint-Véran, together with a gravity fed winery (in need of renovation) and a 300 year old house made of the local honey stone. A place they call GENETIE, in honour of the mysterious name they found etched into the stone of a listed pillar within the building. While they renovate the cellar and building they'll continue to discover interesting wines that truthfully represent the diverse terroir of the Mâconnais.

In the vineyard

St Véran is an appellation that shares many similarities with it’s ‘big brother’ Pouilly Fuissé and some of the best sites are situated on the foothills of two ‘rochers’ that are dominant features of the southern Mâconnais country side - La Roche de Solutré and La Roche de Vergisson. Here the granitic sub soil has its word to say and lends an elegant flinty edge to some quite tender Chardonnay.

In the winery

La Rencontre' translates from French as 'a meeting of people'. The wine has undergone partial malolactic fermentation, which gives the wine a subtle creamy texture, weight and presence.

Food Recommendations

Will be a perfect accompaniment to pan seared scallops, crab, vichyssoise (a leek and potato based soup), and dishes with a cream and lemon based sauce.
