Saint-Véran "Les Mûres" 2005, Roger Lassarat
Another wine tasted at the domaine. Grown on a "terroir argilo-calcaire" (calcareous clay) is was intrigued that Roger Lassarat prices his Saint-Véran slightly higher than his Pouilly. This Saint-Véran is aged 100 per cent in oak barrels of which 25 per cent is new oak adding more structure and flavour. This wine makes a good impression on the palate, chewy acidity, power, oak structure and power at the finish. Very well made.
