Exclusive import

Between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean is the Haute Vallée de L’Aude. The traditional ‘noble’ grape Chardonnay has a natural affinity here. Benefiting from the warm climate combined with high altitude, allowing for slower and longer ripening of the grapes. These ideal growing conditions gives this wine concentrated fruit yet refreshing acidity.

Made from mostly hand-picked grapes, 20% has been vinified in old oak, imparting texture and body.

Bright acidity gives way to green apple and brioche notes. Older oak barrels have added texture and given a toasted hazlenut twist. Burgundian stye without the pricetag. For those looking for a high quality Chardonnay, this punches well above its weight.

FOOD MATCH Baked chicken with a creamy sauce, wild mushroom risotto or pasta with clams in white wine.
