Château de Beauregard Saint Véran
Saint-Véran is an appellation of sandy, limestone-mixed soils and is divided into two areas separated by the vineyards of Pouilly-Fuisse. Château de Beauregard owns 17 acres in Saint-Véran with most of their holdings in the commune of Chasselas. Half of the cuvée is fermented and aged in 228-litre Burgundian piece with the remainder in stainless-steel tanks.
Saint-Véran can show some of the same apple, lemon, and brioche flavors found in Pouilly-Fuissé, although it tends to be less full-bodied. This Saint-Véran shows floral aromas and a touch of “pierre a fusil,” the mineral quality that typifies many white Burgundies.
White Burgundy, with its richness, texture, and toasted flavors pairs well with light fish and shellfish and can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Oak-aged Chardonnay lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.
