Stylistically this represents a sort of halfway house between Macon Blanc and Pouilly Fuissé. This has the floral quality of a Macon Blanc but with greater body and extract. Classic Maconnais Chardonnay at its best. The ‘lieu-dit’ En Pommard, in St. Veran, is sappy and concentrated with a crisp, rounded dry fruitiness. 13.0% abv 2018.

Guy and Annie Saumaize run this 10-hectare estate with passion and total dedication. Guy’s ‘other’ job is growing young vines for other growers (pépinieriste) and, as you can imagine, he takes viticulture very seriously. Careful selection of grafts to match the correct soil-type is somewhat of a speciality and this, coupled with some meticulous wine-making, ensures wines that have vivid fruit flavours and excellent concentration.

Both the St. Veran and Macon Davayé wines are the result of amazing attention to detail in the vineyard.
