Saint-Véran "Les Cras" 2006, Roger Lassarat
More evidence that Saint-Véran, when made by conscientious producers, can be much more than a light, fruity version of Pouilly. This 2006 Saint-Véran has a smoky, flinty, limestone driven nose. Power and concentration on the palate. Wrapped up like a flower bud today on the nose. The length and structure on the palate point to an elegant future from 2011 when the wine will de-veil.
