Details

The Saint Veran Les Mures averages about 20 years old, and is grown on clay-limestone soil on steep, north facing slopes. This also insures good acid and slow maturation, though usually the wines are more open when young than the Les Crays. Like the Les Crays, fermentation is in the barrel, though only in the traditional and neutral large oak known as “foudre”.
