St Véran les Monts 2010 - Case of 6
Good on the offer
Lovely wine, only buy when on offer. Does not have the over powering oak of many New World chardonnays. Good to drink with or without food.

Good Value Chardonnay
I have long been a fan of Saint Veran, but in poor years this white burgundy from the North of the appelation can be thin and unattractive. But this is a great example and congrats to M&S for sourcing such a good type of the genre. This Saint Veran is nicely balanced on the initial palate and then in mid palate some hints of vanilla and raisins appear, suggesting some oaking. But it is not overdone and gives a touch of substance to what is typically one of the lighter white burgundies. This Saint Veran is particularly welcome to me as many of my recent purchases of white burgundy have been oxidised. This is great value wine and an excellent buy at the price. Generally speaking I find that M&S are knocking spots off some of the supermarket competition.
