Genetie Saint-Veran ‘La Rencontre’

£19.71
Named GENETIE, in honour of the mysterious name found etched into the stone walls of the centuries-old winery. Located in southern Burgundy, Genetie will continue to craft interesting wines that truthfully represent the diverse terroir of the Mâconnais.

St Véran is an appellation that shares many similarities with its ‘big brother’ Pouilly Fuissé and some of the best sites are situated on the foothills of two rocky outcrops that are dominant features of the southern Mâconnais country side. Here the granitic sub soil has its word to say and lends an elegant flinty edge to some quite tender Chardonnay. The wine has undergone partial malolcatic fermentation, which gives the wine a subtle creamy texture, weight and presence. 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…….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.
