Domaine Begude, Chardonnay, L’Etoile, Limoux, 2016

In Stock Now!

This is a star barrel-fermented Chardonnay, from very low yields (less than half those in Burgundy). Lovely honey and lavender nose.  Buttery attack with flavours of oatmeal and stone fruit. Low toast. With lots of volume and grip and super length, this is equivalent in quality to a £25 wine from the Côte de Beaune. Now-2021

"Yield reduced to 18hl/ha. Immediate pressing. 85% barrel fermentation with strict barrel sel ection  process. 20% new French oak; all 600l demi-muids. 15% stainless steel coolfermentation. Pretty rich nose and then very fresh, clean, floral nose. Nice chalky finish. Lightly bitter finish again. Very accomplished texture. Slightly sweeter than a fine white burgundy - which should please some palates. Impressively long. 16.5/20", Jancis Robinson,, 22nd March 2018
