Domaine Auvigue Saint-Véran is produced by one of the finest growers in St Veran, adjacent to the villages of Pouilly and Fuisse, from Chardonnay vines situated on chalk and limestone hillsides. Wonderfully structured, showing white fruits with hazelnut and a hint of citrus to provide balance. This full bodied southern Burgundy had extended lees ageing in stainless steel and offers much of the richness and complexity of its more famous neighbours Pouilly Fuisse.
Domaine Auvigue is a dynamic family business and a specialist in the wines of Pouilly Fuissé and Saint-Véran from the Macon region of southern Burgundy, where the chalk and limestone hills give way to the volcanic slopes of Beaujolais to the north of Lyon. Jean-Pierre and Michel Auvigue are third generation proprietors at their winery located in a converted mill, the Moulin du Pont. The family have been working the vineyards for many years, closely following the traditional methods of Burgundian viticulture. Whilst their production is small, the quality is of the highest level, indeed amongst the top three or four of all producers of Pouilly Fuissé.
