2012 Pierre Boyat St Veran Chardonnay

65.00

Pierre Boyat is part of a small, extremely dynamic group of farmers in the far north of Beaujolais. He counts Philippe Jambon, Jerome Guichard and Daniel Millet among his closest peers and for part of their respective productions they share a sloping parcel just to the north of the village of Leynes.

Pierre's white wines are balanced and delicious. He makes this cuvee of St Veran each year (and this vintage is extremely good to drink) and a another cuvee that is predominantly chardonnay called Les Rennes.

The appellation of St Veran encompasses vineyards in three villages; Leynes, Chasselas and St Verand. Wines bottles under this appellation are always 100% Chardonnay.

Pierre is a great farmer. He turns his topsoil once a year, in most cases, though his work is always in response to the season. His winemaking is relatively simple - his white grapes are pressed off slowly, debourbage takes place after 24 hours and the juice then ferments without temperature control and according to the season.

The whites are bottled just prior to the next harvest.

I recommend this cuvee very, very highly for people who enjoy delicious white wine!
