The Haute Vallée de L’Aude benefits from a warm climate combined with high altitude which results in wines with concentrated fruit yet refreshing acidity. Made from mostly hand-picked grapes, 20% has been vinified in old oak, imparting texture and body.
Bright acidity gives way to green apple and brioche notes. Old oak barrels have added texture and given a toasted hazlenut twist. For those looking for a high qualtiy Chardonnay, this punches well above its weight.
Baked chicken with a creamy sauce, wild mushroom risotto or pasta with clams in white wine.
