O By Gilles Louvet Chardonnay 2010
O by Gilles Louvet is an invitation to rediscover wine – wine as it originally used to be made, nourished by the winegrower’spassion for the land and the terroir. It is this little extra feeling, the hard labour amongst the vines and the ability to listen to the needs of nature that results in the unique character of our wines. Terroir: The vines stand on the highest plots of a hillside. The cool nights have the beneficial effect of delaying the harvests by more than a month after those lower down and on the costal areas. It ensures to preserve the healthiest grapes with the maximum of aromas. It also maintains the high level of natural acidity required for perfect balance. These conditions are particularly well suited to the Chardonnay varietal, which develops its best potential thanks to slower ripening.
Scintillating old-gold color with a few green tints. On the nose, the dried-fruit notes stand out mingling with hints of vanilla and toast. This overall impression on the nose attests to the wine is very accomplished maturity and suggests a sweet sensation. On the palate it offers great harmony and volume with buttery and toasted notes.
