Marcel Couturier Saint-Véran La Cour des Bois 2014

Marcel Couturier Saint-Véran

Made with fruit from 70 to 80-year-old vines at the very southern end of the appellation near the village of Chânes, in Saint-Véran. The vinification here is unique, in that this is the only cuvée fermented in stainless steel.

Vinification Fermented in stainless steel, then aged for 11 months with half in 4 to 6-year-old Burgundy barrels and the remainder in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes Flinty and racy, with aromas of preserved lemon. This wine has great presence on the palate yet remains incredibly nimble and vivacious. A great wine for richer seafood preparations.
