Ver Cras sits on it’s own on the right hand side of the village of Fuisse if you are looking up to the amphitheatre of 1er Cru’s including Les Menetrieres, Le Clos and Les Vignes Blanche. It’s unlike the forementioned Cru’s as it’s on a plateau, the whole vineyard is relatively flat. The soil itself is very similar to Champagne, younger limestone than the other 1er Cru’s in the village. Lot’s of white limestone/chalk, not a lot of clay.

Expert review

There is a suggestion of the exotic to the aromas of white and yellow peach, passion fruit and honeysuckle. There is excellent richness and solid volume to the intense, stony and delineated medium weight flavors where the lengthy finish is once again bone-dry and lemony. Fine quality here and worth your interest

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
