This 100% Chardonnay is harvested in the south of France. It is grown in clay-limestone soils influenced by the Mediterranean climate.
This range, of easy-drinking wines, pays tribute to the great noble French varietals and especially to the roots of Ropiteau Frères.
De-stemming, short maceration with skin contact, pressing, controlled fermentation at low temperatures, some in oak. Malolactic fermentation was partially stopped to preserve freshness. A blend of wines which have undergone different types of vinification allowed us to obtain greater finesse and aromatic complexity. One third of the cuvee benefited from maceration in different wood-fired oak barrels which adds aromatic complexity and gives a sugar feel in the mouth.
COLOUR: Beautiful pale gold with green tinges, bright and clear.
NOSE: Complex aromas of citrus and exotic fruits as well as toasted nuts.
PALATE: A rich yet fresh wine with softness and lingering fruitiness. Very delicate mouth feel.
May be enjoyed on its own as an aperitif, with mixed salads or with fish
