MARSANNE-CHARDONNAY 2010 IGP Pays D’OC
There are many styles of Chardonnay – and this is a non-traditional one. First, it comes from Languedoc Roussillon rather than Burgundy. Second, we have blended it with a wine made from the lesser-known Marsanne grapes. The appley-lemony flavours of the Marsanne complement beautifully the richer Chardonnay’s rounder character. Light and unoaked, it’s ideally drunk chilled.

Vineyard Notes The grapes come from the cave cooperative of Pépieux, where 20 growers are cultivating their vineyard sustainably, following the “Charte Farre”. All grape growers are monitored throughout the growing season to produce more concentrated grapes.
Winemaking Notes The grapes were mechanically picked, cold macerated then pressed. Only the clear juice was cool fermented for 6 weeks. The wine remained on lees for 3 months.
Description The range of identities shown by this wine confirms the mixed origins of the grape: pale yellow green, medium intense yellow fruit, violet, green apple, melon, pear and stone fruit. Medium-bodied, a balanced acidity, round mouth-feel and great flavour length. Enjoy the youthful fruit now.
