IGP Pays d'Oc

We wanted to take our rewarding experience with organic wines a stage further and respond to demand from some of our clients whilst keeping quality our number one priority. This is all about trust and techniques. The protocol must be fully understood and implemented efficiently, and the challenges must be taken on board to produce wines with no added sulphur that do not oxidise within the first two years after bottling.

Grape-variety 100% Chardonnay
Soil The soils are sand-dominant.
Winemaking After being harvested by machine, the grapes go straight to the pneumatic press with a blanket of inert gas. After thorough cold settling, alcoholic fermentation occurs by rapid refrigerated yeast inoculation at 18°C. Malolactic fermentation follows its entire course. With its hallmark Chardonnay varietal aromas, the wine then ages on fine lees. Bottling takes place rapidly after the winemaking process with the wines transferred under a blanket of inert gas.
Tasting Note This is a floral, vibrant Chardonnay full of subtlety. Predominant aromas are peach and citrus fruits. Shows at its best served at 6 to 8° straight after opening.
