Barton & Guestier Chardonnay Reserve Vin de Pays d'Oc 2015

Member Review by alienor:

A refined and intense nose, offering aromas of white fruits, followed by tropocial fruits and slightly toasty notes; an elegant wine on the palate with a fleshy attack, a fresh and intense finish, dominated by exotic fruits and a nice vanilla touch.

  Barton & Guestier has a rich history, dating back to the 18th century. Thomas Barton founded his wine-shipping company in 1725, quickly rising to unparalleled levels of success. By 1747, he was considered Bordeaux’s best shipper, and he was the first shipper to have his own wine estates. In 1802, Hugh Barton, Thomas’ grandson, formed a partnership with Daniel Guestier, a French trader, to create Barton & Guestier, now the oldest wine merchant established in Bordeaux. While the company was established in Bordeaux, that’s not where the winemaking ends - it is present in numerous other regions in France, including Loire Valley, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Rhone Valley, Provence, Languedoc, Gascony, and Corsica. This diversity of production grants it a universal appeal, allowing distribution in 130 countries. Laurent Prada, the company’s head winemaker, works in partnership with about 150 winegrowers in France to produce consistent, high-quality wines sourced from all over France. Read less

Firm and rounded and that word elegant babove fits the bill.

Under its original name, you'd pay more than double for this bottling of superior Chardonnay, but circumstances have conspired to make this wine a bargain. Surprisingly complex fruit flavor is the theme here, but with pear, pineapple and a touch of papaya supported by ripe acids and a buttery oak finish. With curries and Asian cuisine, this wine is superb.

Bathed in warm southern sun and cooled by Mediterranean Sea breezes, the vineyards of Languedoc are producing wines of wonderful flavors and reasonable prices. This 100% Chardonnay has delicate fruity and flinty aromas and pleasant flavors. Serve chilled as an apèritif, or with seafood and poultry.

This Chardonnay starts with tropical notes and butterscotch on the nose. The flavors are creamy coconut and banana with a hint of toast.
