Pierre Janny Saint-Véran Merloix 2020
It is not surprising that Saint-Véran 2020 has become one of our top three best-selling wines this year. This has long been a favourite of mine, I always have great pleasure in opening and then drinking. Auberon Waugh wrote in The Spectator of Saint-Véran as great white burgundy on the cheap - we should all buy as much as we can. He was of course right. The Janny family's Saint-Véran was one of the very first wines sent to me in Scotland that I had spotted in the Guide Hachette when we were starting FromVineyardsDirect. When I tasted it I thought if we can offer wines of this quality, this will really work.
This latest release hails from a classic vintage and is one to drink, but also to keep. A first-class, creamy and rich white Burgundy lovely to drink lightly chilled as an aperitif or with pretty much any food.

I was delighted with my first order of a case of Saint-Veran. It has been enjoyed by friends and family alike, and I am now enjoying my second order. Highly recommended.
I'm a massive fan of this chardonnay and this wine was drunk with real pleasure. Not the creamiest St Veran I've had but still equally delicious!
