2014 Saint-Véran “Les Pommards Vieilles Vignes”

Domaine Robert-Denogent

2014 Saint-Véran “Les Pommards Vieilles Vignes” Domaine Robert-Denogent - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Knowing that the Mâcon has a reputation as a more “casual” winemaking region than its northern counterpart in Burgundy, you might assume that the wines are somehow lesser or more simple than the storied whites of Chablis or the Côte de Beaune, but you would be doing yourself a disservice. This Saint-Véran is a serious wine—seriously delicious! More-than-fifty-year-old vines running through limestone and clay produce a wine that offers a creamy and luscious mouthfeel intertwined with a dry, stony minerality. Its aromas of sweet mandarin, lime leaf, and a hint of spice suggest a refreshing adult Creamsicle—perfect with summer sunshine and picnic fare or even a more elegant meal. While Les Pommards may be ignored by hard-line Meursault or Chassagne drinkers, you can do no better than to stock your cellar with this undervalued yet exceptionally worthy and genuinely charming jewel.

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

I want you to realize once and for all: Even the winemaker does not know what aging is going to do to a new vintage; Robert Parker does not know; I do not know. We all make educated (hopefully) guesses about what the future will bring, but guesses they are. And one of the pleasures of a wine cellar is the opportunity it provides for you to witness the evolution of your various selections. Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
