Saint-Veran "Grande Reserve" 2011, Domaine des Maillettes

The bouquet takes me on a journey from cinnamon to dried orange to cantaloupe melon to peach and finally to salt. Ends on bees wax. Good weight on the palate with a brassiere of citrus acidity, more pale yellow racerback than lacy white corsette. In short, that wonderful combination from the Maconnais: ripe Provencal fruits with Cote d'Or finesse. Scores 25/30 for a Saint-Veran. A big success!
