I’m thinking of changing the name of sourgrapes.ie to The Lucky Forest.
Anyhoo, another giveaway.
Newly launched website, www.thewinestore.ie, are giving away 3 prizes of a magnum (that’s a double bottle) of Domaine Olivier Merlin St. Véran.
St. Véran is soooo hot right now, great value white Burgundy. From the newly launched wine store website,
Floral notes on the bouquet make this wine immediately attractive. Then the full, fresh palate, with apples and pears and the lightest dusting of vanilla make it remarkably versatile at the table.
Olivier Merlin is today considered to be not just one of the finest winemakers in the Maconnais but also in the whole of Burgundy. After working in California’s Napa Valley in the 1980s he returned to in the early 1990s to establish his own domaine. Based in the village of La Roche Vineuse near the town of Macon, Merlin today vinifies and bottles a range of outstanding Chardonnay based whites as well as a small range of wines from the Beaujolais . The vision of the Merlins is to express as much as possible each individual vineyard that they work with through their meticulous work on the land. They firmly believe that this has led to a greater understanding of what each parcel has to offer and that therefore the vinification process is simply a function of that. Olivier and his wife Corinne use no herbicides or pesticides on their vineyards.
