This was really great with roasted vegetables, hearty lentils and meat. Fruit brought along to maturity through organic viticulture (really beyond organic in this case). From the elusive Cabardès AOC, which we should really see more of in the export markets (importers, please); this wine exemplifies the complementary diversity of a marriage between the Languedoc-Roussillon and Bordeaux. This is the case from the varieties represented to the seemingly hybrid climate involved, to know-how involved in the cellar. This is brave winemaking. The dark fruit balances nicely with red berry acidity, serious concentration of sweet spices (black liquorice) and granite, which gives this wine a great sense of authenticity. I love these wines because they answer "who cares?" to the question, "oh no, what if we don't emphasize the fruit more?"
External Reviews for Chardonnay Vdp DOC Vinifié En Fût Neuf
Ein guter Chardonnay mit dezenter Holznote vom Barrique, exotische Noten, viel Frische und Rasse.
Ein hervorragender Chardonnay, einige Monate in neuen Barriques ausgebaut und dadurch feine exotische Noten. Trotz Holzausbau viel Frische und Rasse. Ein wirklich schöner Chardonnay der beim Trinken Spass macht.
