"Gorgeously creamy La Voûte 2014 from Limoux. It looks dead classy - and it is, too"
The Guardian, Nov 15
One of our prized, rule breaking whites, La Voûte is largely the work of Mark Hoddy at our own cellar, Le Chai au Quai. He wanted to make a rich but zesty Burgundy style wine at an affordable price. Mark knew exactly where to source the best grapes in 2014 - yet again from the Astruc vineyard in Limoux Océanique, where the vines, planted at 300 metres, produce ripe fruit with depth and firm acidity. After careful pressing the juice was transported under cool conditions to Le Chai and put into new oak barrels to ferment at tick over speed. A further eight months in oak has lent a broad, creamy texture to the peach and lemon fruit. Serve in large bowled glasses in order to release the aroma, with chicken or fish with a creamy, lemony sauce.
