Gilles Guerrin Saint Veran

Tasting in the shop today is the new 2006 vintage of the Saint Veran Cuvee Prestige from Gilles Guerrin. The cuvee prestige is the one that is aged in barrique and this vintage carries on in good style from the excellent 05.

Quite exotic on the nose with tropical aromas blending in with vanilla and spice. Quite full-bodied, with ripe fruit, crisp acidity and oak all blending well and a long, mineral finish. Put this in a bottle named Meursault and many of you would fall for it. Quite a bargain at €17.99 if you like this style of wine.
