2014 Joseph Drouhin Saint-Veran, $16.9

We have seen a large number of white Burgundies from the 2014 vintage in the shop over the last few months, and almost without exception, the wines have been spectacular! So when I saw we brought in a few cases of Joseph Drouhin's 2014 Saint-Veran, I had to grab a bottle. Maison Joseph Drouhin owns vineyards throughout both the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits. They are also one of the major negociants in Burgundy, producing a large number of wines from sourced fruit. This wine is made with Chardonnay grapes grown in the Saint-Veran appellation, located at the very southern end of Burgundy, slightly north of Beaujolais. The wine was aged in stainless steel for six to eight months. It is very well balanced with great acidity, but also a tremendous texture. The wine shows lemon, green apple, and just a hint of crème brûlée. At $16.99 it’s a great value from a great producer. Grab a couple for your Thanksgiving dinner!
