Chardonnay

Pays d'Oc IGP

Can be served well-chilled as an aperitif and also makes the perfect match for fish or seafood as well as white meat and pasta in a creamy sauce.

Varietal range: This white wine is a single varietal Chardonnay.

Soil types: The vineyards are located along the Mediterranean shoreline, in the area around Béziers. They enjoy a hot, humid climate which promotes development of aroma in the grapes during ripening, producing a varied range of wine profiles.

Vineyard management: The utmost care is lavished on vineyard management and the health of the fruit. The vines are trained using the Guyot system.

Winemaking: The grapes are harvested by machine by night to take advantage of the cool night time temperatures. They are then destemmed and undergo short skin contact maceration. The juice is clarified at low temperatures (7°C). Temperatures are regularly checked during fermentation. A small amount of yeast can be added at the start of fermentation to maximise the development of aromas.

Tasting notes: Beautiful, brilliant yellow. Inviting nose of white-fleshed fruits, fruit stones and honey. The palate is lively on the attack with aromas of pear and white peach and shows lots of volume on the finish.

Drink preferably within the first 2 years following bottling. Drinking temperature: 10/12°C.
