Grape variety

Chardonnay

Origin

The grapes for this wine come from four terroirs: the buttresses of the Cévennes
which lend freshness to the wine, the Aude valley, the region of Limoux which
gives fruity aromas and the Hérault plain which brings richness and roundness.

Vinification

1/3 of the cuvée undergoes a 3-week fermentation period in oak barrels (new and
one-year-old). 9-months ageing in barrels, on the lees with regular stirring.
Malolactic fermentation. The remaining is fermented in stainless steel vats at
controlled temperatures (18°- 20°C). No malolactic fermentation.

Tasting notes

Limpid golden robe.
Aromas of pear, green apple, hazelnut, white _owers.
Fresh, complex, balanced palate. Long _nish with slight hints of butter.

Wine and Food

As an aperitif, with seafood, fish and charcuterie.

Serving suggestions

Serve at 12°C
