WHAT A BARGAIN!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? FRENCH CHARDONNAY FOR UNDER 10 BUCKS!

Winery Notes:
Sparkling gold yellow in colour with a delicate nose of white flowers, toasted almonds and brioche. Nice length in the mouth, this wine is fat, round and with subtle hints of coconut. A balanced and harmonious wine, it will reach it's best in 2-3 years time. A fantastic Grand Ardèche! Tasted in October 2011.

Vinification:
Traditional oak barrel ageing for 8-10 months with 100% malolactic fermentation

Description:
Consistency of climate and abundant sunshine in the Ardèche perfectly ripen these bunches of grapes , whilst the drying Mistral wind eliminates any risk of rot. The Grand Ardèche is treated as if it were grown in one of the Grand Cru vineyards of the Côte-d’Or. Fully-ripened grapes are selected and pressed lightly before being aged in oak barrels made at the Latour cooperage in Beaune.
