"An icon in Languedoc" from the famous French wine critics Bettane & Desseauve. This is the least we can say for this amazing 100% Chardonnay. Tiny yields, harvest at night to protect grapes, careful vinification and 3 months in French oak barrels: These are the secret ingredients to what is, according to many famous critics, the "best Chardonnay in Languedoc". This luscious white shows complex aromas of white fruit and hazelnut. On the palate, its buttery structure opens up with a long and structured finish, reminiscent of what you can find in Burgundy. Simply amazing!

|What experts say|
17/20 "100% Chardonnay. Wonderful smells of ground almonds and lemon peel, then a very very creamy thick palate - like cheesecake. Silky sensuous texture. Biscuity too with a caraway note. Fabulous. Long. Intense. (TC)"
18/20 "It has become an icon in Languedoc, a world of complex, spicy and airy flavours by itself. Probably the greatest Chardonnay from Southern France, with its unique style. Just drink it." (previous vintage)
15/20 "We like its clean palate, its shiny white and grey colour, its yummy flavours with minty notes, its maturity and roundness..." (previous vintage)
90/100 "Superb light gold. Rich nose of smoky oak backed by honeysuckle, hazelnut, white fruits... Lush, sappy palate. Freshness softens the forcefulness of the oak with fruit waiting in the wings. Cellaring is essential for real enjoyment." (previous vintage)
