Domaine du Chalet Pouilly Saint-Véran 2016

Member Review by zufrieden:

With an inviting nose of candy or icing sugar sprinkled over gooseberry - or perhaps sour apple - this Saint-Veran begins well; the entry is very Burgundian Chardonnay with more or less neutral white fruit and stewed apple. There is some depth to the palate and a lingering finish. Very good value for a neighbour of Pouilly-Fuisse. 88.

Domaine du Chalet Pouilly:
The grape picking period is an essential stage to elaborate a produce that you will enjoy. The decision to start picking is related to the maturity of grapes, which are totally brought to the vat place of the property. The vintage is pressed thanks to a pneumatic wine press.

The grape picking period is an essential stage to elaborate a produce that you will enjoy. The decision to start picking is related to the maturity of grapes, which are totally brought to the vat place of the property. The vintage is pressed thanks to a pneumatic wine press. The potential degrees are good enough naturally (12-13°C) ; it is then possible to avoid a systematic chaptalization. In order to keep the characters of our wines, we do not add yeast to the must ; the natural yeast transmit their rural flavours to the wines. Then, we put the must in oak barrels, where they will slowly ferment in an underground cellar. The wines are preserved on fine dregs during one year and they are regularly beaten until the end of the second fermentation (malo-lactic). Our choice is to let nature express itself through our wines. That is why we elaborate age-worthy wines with a rustic touch. Sometimes, you have to wait a few years before their real flavour is coming out. Read less

Located on a hillside overlooking the village of Pouilly, with 8 hectares of vineyards, this Domaine has been family owned and operated for the last hundred years. Today the Domaine is run by Doctor Bernard Leger-Plumet and his wife, Agnes. They believe the beauty of their wines lies in the vineyard. Their vines are old, and their soil rich and calcareous. Combine this with their delicate use of oak and no added yeasts during ferment and the result is an extremely elegant and agreeable Burgundy.
