Collovray & Terrier Domaine du Deux Roches Saint Veran Rives de Longsault, 2007

Even though it was clearly no youngster, I couldn't resist taking a chance on this wine, which had a reserve of $10 and no other bidders. I enjoyed many Deux Roches Saint Veran wines in the 1990s, and they aged well, although I never kept them for 13 years. This 2007 is clearly showing its age, but it's also showing its appellation, which is comparable to Pouilly Fuisse and very good indeed.

Very deep gold. Spiced apples and grilled nuts.  A bit subdued at this stage but still showing a unique Saint Veran personality. What's left at this stage is Macon Chardonnay fruit and not the oak shell that you might find on an overly mature New World Chardonnayj. Well worth the $10 price tag.
