Fabulous Grand Cru style, Gold medal Chardonnay from Le Chai and Limoux’s high vineyards. 2019 was a hot vintage, even for the Languedoc. Ripe, intensely flavoured grapes have produced a superb white with dazzling lemon fruit and subtle spice.
One of Le Chai's most prized whites, La Voûte is the team work of winemaker Mark Hoddy and a top grower in the Limoux. Mark's aim with this wine is to make a rich yet mineral fresh Burgundy style wine at an affordable price. He knows exactly where to source the best grapes each vintage – Bruno Bouché's Astruc vineyard in Limoux Océanique, where the vines, planted at 300 metres, benefit from both the cooling Atlantic and the warmth of the Med. It results in intense ripe fruit with excellent freshness. After careful pressing the juice is put into new oak barrels to ferment slowly. A further year’s ageing in oak, with stirring of its lees, lends a creamy texture to the peach and lemon fruit. Serve cool with chicken or fish in a lemony sauce.
"Our favourite! Absolutely delicious - big, round, bold and luxurious with a real complex finish"
