AOP Limoux

Eden des Sérènes is part of the 90+ programme that aims to offer you the level of quality you would expect of world class wines.

This label is a high-altitude Chardonnay from Limoux, matured in new casks according to the rules applied by the appellation.

Grape-varieties 90% Chardonnay, 10% Chenin and Mauzac
Soil clay-limestone soil
Winemaking The grapes are hand-picked then go direct to press using a pneumatic press. After basic cold settling, fermentation takes place in barrels previously used for one to four wines at around 20°C. Malolactic fermentation is partial and stops naturally. The wine ages for a year in casks on fine lees with stirring. Very small amounts of SO2 are added before bottling (none is added before then). The wine develops hallmark varietal aromas of Chardonnay grown on cool, high-altitude vineyard sites.
Tasting Note A balanced wine, midway between citrus, white fruits and exotic, vanilla-like spices. Age-worthy and drinking at its best at 10°C.
