About this wine

Although the grand 19th century Le Chai au Quai lies in Castillon, Bordeaux, winemakers Jean-Marc Sauboua and Mark Hoddy search every remote corner of France for fruit with really superb intensity. They aren't hidebound by lofty appellations. So their top Chardonnay is unlikely to come from Burgundy - this big number uses grapes gathered from the high hills close to Carcassonne in the Languedoc. It's an ultra rich style of white, the grapes picked when gorgeously ripe and the juice fermented and aged in barrel. As with all the finest Burgundies, it went through a malolactic fermentation too, which makes the wine even creamier. JMS calls it a 'winter warmer of a white' - from a great, low yielding vintage. Superb with white meats and salmon.
