Montsable Reserve Chardonnay 2021
The wind known as the Vent Cers, together with the altitude, contributes to this region in the Mediterranean, the Haute Vallée de l’Aude, being the coolest in the district. Deep straw in colour, 30% of the wine spends six months in French oak to improve its complexity. There is a degree or two more intensity to be found here and a hint of oak influence. Notes of melons, cashews, orange rind and stonefruit complemented by a lovely sweet core of orange and peaches. It is well structured with a lingering finish. Enjoy it now or at any time over the next two to four years.
