Comprising several villages in the south of Macon and adjacent to Pouilly-Fuisse, St Veran was created in 1971 – one of the first appellations whose wines had to be approved by a tasting panel. The La Grande Bruyere vineyard was planted near the village of Davayé in 1973 by Renée and Roger Luquet. At a height of 245m and with a clay and limestone soil, the Saint-Véran from this terroir is softer than others.
A little fuller on the palate, made from 25-35 year-old vines. Stainless steel tanks and traditional vinification preserves the character of the very stony terroir.
