Domaine des Deux Roches translates as ‘Estate of the Two Rocks’, a reference to the position of this wine estate between the two distinctive, rocky escarpments of Solutre and Vergisson, in the Maconnais area of southern Burgundy. Owners of the Domaine, Jean-Luc Terrier and Christian Collovray make this great Saint-Veran, a white that beats many Burgundies for sheer deliciousness.
Plenty of classic citrus notes, but a little fuller and more exuberant than Chablis for example, and without Chablis’ very crisp nature. An allrounder of a wine, to suit most occasions. It’s ripe, round, and full of juicy pear and peach fruit to match pork dishes and fruit-based sauces, and a touch of oak gives almond and nut hints that suits nut/seed-based salads and vegetable dishes too. 13.5% ABV.
