The Saint Veran AOC which was granted in 1971, lies in the South of the Maconnais region, forming a belt around the appellation of Pouilly Fuisse. The soils, ideally suited to Chardonnay, produce only white wines.
The cru is split into two small plots, both run alongside the extended bottom slopes of Solutre mountain which display at their top specific limestone soils called ‘Calcaire a Entroques’. The steep western slopes of this terroir are made of grey marls. The more gentle slopes are made of limestone and marle.
