Chardonnay 2015 - Domaine de la Grande Courtade


One could think that Chardonnay is a grape made for Burgundy or Champagne, however it is can grow well in various types of climate, even warmer ones. This southern Chardonnay exhibits a pale golden colour and a slightly toasted nose, due to a short time spent in oak barrel. Palate is balanced and lively with notes of white flowers. The buttery and round finish with notes of brioche will make you think of a more upmarket bottle. Definitely some great value here.

The Languedoc is one of the main producers of Rosé in France thanks to a warm and dry climate. Some are very Provence-like, just like this very refreshing cuvée: light, fresh and fruity rosé (raspberry, apple), just as we like it. Though it is not quite summer yet, but who says we can’t enjoy a nice glass of rosé in front of the fireplace!

This cuvée - produced in a tiny quantity - is the top of what the Fabre family can do, giving it a very special care. Old vines of Carignan bring in a huge personality: Dark colour, intense nose of spices, rich palate of cassis and spicy flavours. Tannins are still present but show a beautiful harmony. Definitely a wine to keep for a few years in your...
