Clos Sauvage - 'Les Fées' Saint Véran 2021
A beautiful and textured chardonnay from Leynes, southern Burgundy, fermented and aged in 400 and 500L old barrels. Lean and precise, very mineral with a beautiful length through the palate and a long, persistent finish.
Sophie and David of Clos Sauvage have been making wine in a beautiful corner of their region at 450m of altitude on the exact border between Burgundy and Beaujolais since 2018. Their aim from the start has been to create an autonomous farm where vines are grown alongside many other products, where cows and horses roam on adjacent pastures, where bees are kept, and where farmstays are possible.
