Wine Description:
Domaine Famille Paquet Saint-Véran 'Les Cras' is a white wine from the Saint-Véran appellation. The Domaine was founded in 1980 and continues to be run by the same family. This wine is crafted from grapes grown in the Les Cras vineyard. The vineyard has limestone-rich soils and optimal sun exposure, which contribute to the wine's ripe expression and chalky minerality. The winemaking with a very high proportion of maturation in older oak adds texture to the mid palate. The end result is a wine of great focus and elegance. This is a great starting point for those looking to explore the great single vineyard sites of the Maconnais. Read more

Wine Expert Note:

The Domaine Famille Paquet Saint-Véran 'Les Cras' is a delightful white wine that typifies the warmer climate and limestone soils of Saint-Veran. On the nose, this wine offers enticing aromas of ripe citrus fruits, such as lemon and grapefruit. The palate is beautifully balanced, with a refreshing acidity that brings out the vibrant fruit flavors. There is a lovely creaminess to the texture, adding depth and complexity to the wine. It pairs wonderfully with a variety of dishes, including seafood, poultry, and creamy cheeses. The wine can be enjoyed now, but it also has the potential to age for 5 years and holding for a further 3 years at peak. Read more

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
