About

88

"Ripe stone fruit, clove-spiced whole orange and delicate toast aromas dance in the bouquet and follow through to the full and round palate. Slight char and wood-spice accents linger on the medium-length finish. Drink now. - LB" (06/12)

88 Wine Spectator

"Lithe, with a refreshing minerality and spiciness to the elegant flavors of Fuji apple, white cherry and gooseberry. Shows tropical hints on the finish. Drink now through 2016. 8,300 cases made. -KM" (08/12)

Product Description:

"100% Chardonnay from the highest, coolest limestone vineyards in Limoux. Nice yellow color with golden hints. Steady and open bouquet with notes of white flowers. Harmonious palate with roundness and an aromatic complexity on the finish."

"The AOC Limoux is situated at the crossroads of the major climatic influences. 20 years of research and development have allowed to reveal that Limoux was not a unique terroir, but four terroirs having each their personality. Indeed topographical situation, climate, soil and subsoil quality differs in each terroir revealing the diversity and the richness of the Limoux vineyard. Located to the south, closer to the Pyrenees, in the Haute Vallee, the climate is increasingly cold. Growing at around 400-500 meters high, the Chardonnays are very floral and mineral, with a beautiful harmony between roundness and acidity." - Importer
