Get to know: Montsable Reserve Chardonnay 2 for £25 OFFER
2 bottles of one of our favourite Chardonnays for a discounted price of £25
Fantastic value, richer style of Chardonnay sourced from 20-30 year old vines in the Haute Vallée de l’Aude. The nose opens with floral aromas, white peach, vanilla and toasty notes. On the palate it has a lovely creamy texture from 6 months in French oak. The fruit is ripe with more peach, lemon and lime while there's enough acidity it keep it fresh as it moves towards a classy finish with mineral hints.
Ideal with richly flavoured fish dishes, langoustines, lobster, trout or salmon, rich enough to handle creamy sauces.
"This is an enjoyably indulgent Chardonnay that wears it's rich oaky flavours proudly while maintaining fresh and balanced. I'd love a glass of this with a buttery lobster roll."
Montsablé Réserve represents the pinnacle of site selection within the Haute Vallée de l’Aude, the coolest of all the Mediterranean regions of France due to altitude and influence of the cool Atlantic wind, the Vent Cers. Altitude, climate and limestone rich soils combine to produce outstanding fruit, with which we create wines of elegance and freshness. The specific Haute Vallée sites are perfect for Chardonnay due to slower ripening and better levels of acidity. The vines are 20-30 years old and grow on Argilo Calcaires soils.
The wine is left on its lees to add complexity of flavour, texture and weight whilst retaining refreshing ripe fruit character. Critically, 30% of the wine is aged in French wood for 6 months adding further creamy complexity.
