Winemaker's Pitch

Saint-Veran, traditionally, was a variation of Macon whites which was ever so slightly cheesy on the nose and oft one-dimensional. A stepping stone between Macon-Villages and the prestigious Pouilly-Fumé-Fuissé. Guerrin have bucked this trend with their offerings, this “La Cote Doree” is a tiny single plot (just under 1 acre) with vines that are over 50 yrs old. The result is a broad, soft textured wine, with a fragrant bouquet of crisp white peach, honeysuckle and honey.
