Grape variety

100% Chardonnay. Certified Organic.


A proportion of the grapes for this Chardonnay come from cool, altitude clay-limestone terroirs in the Limoux region which are grown organically. The remainder comes from the Mediterranean foothills in the Hérault region, north of Béziers. The grapes are harvested early in the morning to preserve their freshness.


Pneumatic pressing. The juice from the end of the pressing is discarded. No
sulphiting is carried out before settling. The must is settled very carefully in
order to obtain a taut wine with a very fine character. Fermentation takes place
at 18-20°C in stainless steel and concrete vats in order to bring out the finest
expression of the grape variety. Partial malolactic fermentation.


The wine is aged on its fine lees for 9 months in temperature-controlled vats with occasional bâtonnage (stirring of the lees).
A small proportion is aged in wood.

Tasting notes

Light, pale golden hue. Lovely expressive nose of Chardonnay grown at high altitude, fresh and taut with mineral notes of pebbles and lemon and a touch of slightly smoked toasted hazelnut. On entry to the palate, the wine shows fullness with a nice acidic edge that creates a lovely freshness and a pineapple finish.

Wine and Food

This Chardonnay can be enjoyed as an aperitif, with grilled fish, tapas, pan-fried prawns and langoustines.

Serving suggestions

Between 11 et 13°C.
