Tasting Notes

Medium bodied, crisp and elegant with delicious red berry flavours. This wine has a lovely freshness and mineral notes from the volcanic soil.

The Producer

The vineyards run along the foothills of the Chaine-des-Puys, a line of dormant volcanoes stretching, intermittently, 80km and sharing the same latitude as Bordeaux and northern Rhone, although at a higher altitude. These volcanos form a line of peaks that not only influence the soil but provide a barrier to the westerly weather.

Cave Saint-Verny is the sole co-operative in the Puy-de-Dôme. Originally called Cave des Coteaux it was founded in 1950 and suffered a chequered history, coming close to being dissolved in the late 1980s. The Cave was rescued in 1991 by a 15 million Francs investment from Limagrain, Europe’s largest agricultural seed specialist.
