Paris, France — It is one of the fine wines of the Burgundy and Macon regions and one of its unsung heroes, too. The lively Saint-Véran, a relatively new appellation (1971), is an elegant wine, perfect for a before-dinner drink and with your favorite fish dishes. It is reminiscent of its neighbor, Pouilly-Fuissé, with its nutty aromas. And the Saint-Véran Grand Clos 2018 is no exception. The wine fully merited its silver medal in the 2020 Mâcon and Beaujolais Wine Competition. Pale gold in color, made of 100% Chardonnay grapes, it is a fully balanced affair resounding with subtle flavors of exotic fruits.

This wine was elaborated by the Orfèvres du Vin cooperative which brings together some 70 wine producers in Burgundy, the Beaujolais and Macon. The cooperative which was founded in 1929 is specialized in the wines of Burgundy, the Macon and the Beaujolais and practices sustainable development.
