Like the rising prow of some ancient fossilised ship, the Roche de Soultré dominates the surrounding landscape of the Mâconnais. This limestone escarpment stands tall over the 10 hectare vineyard where Robert Martin and his son, Damien, work their land lutte-raisonnée. Damien's star, like the Roche, is rising in the Mâconnais as he creates elegant, restrained, mineral driven Mâcon-Davayé and rich, full, but elegant St Véran wines from the land. These wines are deliciously drinkable and incredible value.
Grown on clay soils with some limestone.
A traditional fermentation in stainless steel vats and aging on the fine lees for 6 to 7 months. No oak treatment
Classic white Burgundy with no oak, glistening with finesse, such is the tension between elegance and fullness: gentle scents mingle with a lively freshness, the soft and generous Chardonnay fruit is perfectly poised on the palate leading to good length in the finish.
Just perfect with fish, seafood and "veal blanquette".
