Domaine Begude, Chardonnay, L'Etoile, Limoux, 2020

This is a star barrel-fermented Chardonnay, from very low yields - less than half those in Burgundy. It develops beautifully, with ripe citrus and buttery notes coming to the fore. Lots of volume and grip. Now-2025 We have been shipping... Read More

Domaine Begude

Limoux

"I could not quite afford to buy in Burgundy so I chose the next best thing". But it hasn't always been an easy ride: he acknowledges how tough it is to be a farmer: his...

Chardonnay

Chardonnay is one of the most-widely planted varieties in the world.

Arguably not the most characterful grape, hence its common ageing in oak, yet at its pinnacle in Burgundy it produces some of the greatest (and certainly most expensive) white wines in the world.

Domaine Begude, Chardonnay, L'Etoile, Limoux, 2020

This is a star barrel-fermented Chardonnay, from very low yields - less than half those in Burgundy. It develops beautifully, with ripe citrus and buttery notes coming to the fore. Lots of volume and grip. Now-2025

We have been shipping wines from James Kinglake since 2010, soon after he left his life in the City to buy the Château Haute Begude, about 350 metres up in the foothills of the Pyrenees near Limoux. It's been tough in recent years: damaging late frosts, mildew and summer heat and drought have wreaked havoc on his yields.

Our favourite wine merchant never fails to delight. Delicious wines at every price point - including a few gems below £10 in our favourites list. We’ve really enjoyed the sun case as an easy way to be introduced to new wines which we’ve then reordered. Friendly informative service completes the package.
