Maison Ventenac Carole.

Another Chardonnay? Yes but this one is different. Grown in the terroir of Languedoc but also with oceanic influence from the Atlantic and there aren’t so many oceanic Chardonnays around. This sunny Chardonnay is also tight, lively and with an added 5% Gros Manseng. Grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press and processed in an oxidative method. Cold clarification. Fermentation at 18° in 300 hl stainless steel tanks. 25% malolactic fermentation. Ageing on fine lees for 2 months.

Tasting Notes

Soft and subtle on the nose with baked bruised apple and the tiniest hint of brioche on the palate. It’s layered with good depth of flavour and enough acidity to sustain interest and freshness ending with a long finish.

Best served with: A perfect wine as an aperitif, or with a Provençal tuna flan, gambas fritters, scallops gratin or a veal escalope à la normande.

Serving temperature: Serve as an aperitif or with a meal between 11° and 13°C.

Peak drinking: Drink now or keep for up to 7 years.
