Pays d'Oc Event Recap

A tasting event full of some delicious wines


« Prev Next » 4 of 9

One of the great engines that has driven this move into the present for Pays d’Oc has been their ability to adopt some of the most important varieties as their own. Chardonnay for example, the world’s premier white grape, is well represented in the Pays d’Oc.
With wines across the style spectrum, the Chardonnays of Pays d’Oc can meet your many needs. At this tasting we tried the the 2011 Vignerons d'Alignan du Vent Cinquante Cinq Chardonnay ($10), a fresh, bright example coming for the fourth generation of this family run cooperative, France’s largest family run co-op.
In contrast, we enjoyed the 2010 Gérard Bertrand, Cigalus Chardonnay ($45), a benchmark example for the region reflecting Gerard Bertrand’s ambition and confidence in the region. Here we experienced Chardonnay that can compete with the world’s finest, spiced with a touch of Viogner and the freshness of Sauvignon Blanc barrel aged in French barrique and perfectly prepared to take on the top Chardonnays from around the world.
