The Burriers have been a prominent winegrowing family in southern Burgundy since the 15th Century and have owned the Château de Beauregard in Pouilly-Fuissé for six generations. Frédéric-Marc Burrier is the current family member in charge and bottles several different wines from Pouilly-Fuissé along with wines from Mâcon and St-Véran.

About the Vineyard

The Mâconnais takes its name from the city of Mâcon and sits between the regions of Côte Chalonnaise to the north and Beaujolais to the south. Maison Joseph Burrier owns over 70 acres of Chardonnay, within the appellations of Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran, and Mâcon-Bussières.

Wine Production

Saint-Véran is an appellation of sandy, limestone-mixed soils and is divided into two areas separated by the vineyards of Pouilly-Fuisse. Château de Beauregard owns 18.5 acres in Saint-Véran with most of their holdings in the commune of Chasselas. The cuvée is fermented and aged in stainless-steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Saint-Véran can show some of the same apple, lemon, and brioche flavors found in Pouilly-Fuissé, although it tends to be less full-bodied. This Saint-Véran shows floral aromas and a touch of “pierre a fusil,” the mineral quality that typifies many white Burgundies.

Food Pairing

White Burgundy, with its richness, texture, and toasted flavors pairs well with light fish and shellfish and can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Oak-aged Chardonnay lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.
