Very Veyry 2016 is the superb entry level wine of Château Veyry and was purchased in its original cases.
Veyry is a garage wine - a term used to describe production that could fit into a garage. It is also literally a garage wine, comprising a battered old garage housing two battered old Citroens and disguising a small high-tech winery!
Its secret combines the genius of Christian Veyry with 4 hectares of south-facing vines that are a direct continuation of the limestone ridge upon which the great Saint-Émilions are based. And Château Veyry is certainly in the same rich vein as this classic Bordeaux style, without the price premium of its more famous neighbours. Remarkable wines from an unremarkable shed.
Dense and intense offering ripe, aromatic black fruits (currant, cherry even hints of berry) yet with good freshness and acidity to balance the ripe, creamy fruit. Pleasing notes of mocha, chocolate, spice and hints of oak make for a very satisfying mouthful and crowd-pleaser overall. This is, if anything, even better than the delicious 2015!
