Saint Veran 2019, Vins Saisons
Eric Pignal and Loïc Lamy, two good friends, have recently started their negoce project based in a well-known cellar in Meloisey – the old cellar of the Rougeot negociant business. They share the passion for the same wines and principles, and both come from rather solid backgrounds: Eric is the assistant winemaker at Château de Pommard, having worked before at domaines Dujac, Roulot and Roumier. Loïc Lamy instead is currently employed as the export manager at Domaine de Montille. Following a natural approach they exclusively work with organically or biodynamically farmed grapes, minimal intervention in the cellar and favour the promotion of under valued terroirs. In their own words "no machinery nor heavy technology is employed, just a lot of care and attention to details”.
The grapes come from the lieu-dit Les Cornillaux, where the soils are composed by a beautiful mix of hard limestone and grey marls from the Lias. Seductive aromas of citrus fruit, honeysuckle and white flowers. The palate is rather complex and offers remarkable exotic notes. Round yet nicely balanced, it ends on a delicate, salty finish.
