Domaine de la Fueillarde Saint Veran
Bright with a light gold hue. Aromas of peach and lemon which follow in the crisp palate. Well balanced, with a mixture of white fruit and a hint of flint. Domaine La Feuillarde is one of the finest estates in St-Veran created in 1934 and now extends over 12 hectares on southwest-facing slopes. The Thomas family has been estate-bottling the majority of their production since 1987, specialising in St-Veran. Lucien Thomas, the owner and winemaker, produces his St-Veran from old-vines planted around a remarkable, single-block, south south-west facing amphitheatre vineyard. The vineyards are ploughed, the vines severely pruned, and yields carefully monitored by cluster-thinning. Thomas seeks the fullest expression of fruit and terroir. His wines have been regularly acclaimed by the critics for their focus, purity and intensity. As early as 2004, The Wine Spectator did a full page feature profile on Lucien Thomas, applauding his exceptional technique and the richness and purity of his wines.
