When a co-operative (such as the Cave Saint-Verny) dominates a regions production, it is essential that the overall quality is of the highest possible standard in order to help create a reputation for the appellation as a whole. The Cave Saint Verny might produce modest wines, but it’s an excellent ambassador, producing excellent wines for their intended price point. The fact that a total of 60% of the wineries production is sold within the region demonstrates how lost and forgotten the wines of the Auvergne are.
Very juicy and bright with raspberries and cherries. Supple and sweetly fruited with nice texture.
