The perfect way to ease yourself into French Chard.
This is a Languedoc Chardonnay that takes inspiration from the elegant Burgundian whites from the Mâconnais. The fruit is sourced from the cooler higher valleys of Limoux which allows for a slower ripening period and good levesl of acidity. Just 20% of the wine is oaked which helps give it a mere hint of vanilla while ensuring the freshness leads through allowing the flavours ripe pears and peaches to shine. The good crisp acidity give a real freshness to the palate and a refreshingly clean finish.
A bright yellow gold hue and seductive scents of blossom and cinnamon spice. A remarkable melange of pears, peach, honey toffee, cream and vanilla (from a short spell of oak ageing) on the palate. Beautifully balanced with ripeness, acidity, length and real structure. A very classy Chardonnay.
"Burgundian in looks, Burgundian in style (3 months French oak). A beautifully balanced elegant chardonnay at a very NON Burgundian price." 93 points / 5 stars from Bob Campbell.
