Chardonnay Prestige 2016 IGP Val de Loire - Domaine de la Ragotière


As well as the classic Muscadets, Château de la Ragotière produces an amazing Chardonnay from 30 years old vines and partly aged in oak - for 15% of the cuvée. A great discovery, especially sine Chardonnay is not the most common grape in the Loire valley. This wine shows what a talented winemaker can do outside of the classic of a region! A very expressive wine, the palate is well-balanced, round and aromatic with notes of dried fruits and white flowers. Definitely one to try!

1*Excellent wine "Expressive and harmonious, this Chardonnay delivers a bouquet of dried fruit, apricot and white flowers. The palate is balanced, both round and toned, held by a fine vivacity to the final." (previous vintage)
