Product Description:

100% Chardonnay from the highest, coolest limestone vineyards in Limoux. 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 Vallée, 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. The Chardonnay ripens late and is vinified exclusively in barrels. 90% of the juice comes from the pressing of whole bunches in a pneumatic press and 10% results from a maceration (24 hours at 17°C). Indigenous yeasts. The wine is aged for nine months in oak barrels (1/3 new, 1/3 one year old, 1/3 two years old. 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.
