This Chardonnay Grande Réserve, selected from among the terroirs of the Pays d’Oc, is classified as a Protected Geographical Indication wine. The Pays d’Oc’s diversity of soils and Mediterranean climate allow this grape variety to reveal its full potential and particularly its range of tropical fruit aromas. The character and elegance of this wine are derived from the care taken during vinification.
Separation of the free run and the press juices followed by settling. After settling the musts are fermented to bring out the tropical and orchard fruit aromas. The wines are aged on the fine lees for 2-3 months with batônnage to stir the lees into suspension, endowing the wine with aromatic complexity and volume on the palate.
Maison Castel, touch of France wine, simple, easy to nipple and pleasant to taste.
