Tasting Notes

Once in a great while you find wines from the Mâcon so good that tasting them blind you are forced to apply some much higher (and more expensive) appellation to it. Often, such a wine comes from hillside vineyards, with better drainage and cooler nights. This is such a wine, from the slopes below the giant monolith of rock that is Solutré. Domaine Renaud is a small operation, making Mâcon, Pouilly-Fuissé and St-Veran from 12 hectares of estate vineyards. Their cellar is modern, and they use upright ovals for many of the wines, and stainless for others. This value is a great alternative to California Chardonnay and an entry into white Burgundy.

    The St-Véran takes everything up a notch with a nose that brims with flint, white flowers and lime blossom notes. The palate is focused, with favors of lime zest, green fig and stone fruits. Great energy and lift give this wine a lightweight feel when in reality it is dense and packed with both fruit and mineral notes. A gorgeous white that completely over-delivers for less than $20.

    Coming off a third great vintage the Domaine Renaud wines continue to show up as among the best everyday white Burgundy that we carry. Year after year this direct import shows far more wine than the price would suggest, and in vintages like the 2016 this becomes even more true. Of the Renaud offerings the St. Veran is generally my top pick and 2016 is no different. A little higher acid and lighter than the previous vintage the St Veran shows lovely floral and rich fruit on the nose. There is oak weight here with plenty of golden apple and a balancing acidity. Long finish, this is an immensely pleasing white wine.
