Sister wine to Le Champ des Etoiles Pinot Noir, this crisp Chardonnay is made in classic Mâcon Villages style, yet the fruit comes from ocean cooled Languedoc vineyards. Deliciously creamy and full, it offers stone fruit with elegant minerally zip.
"Lovely, fruity Chardonnay. Smooth, oak-aged Chardonnay with a gorgeous, fruity taste"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
The winemaking mission at Le Chai au Quai is to make classic Grand Cru style wine at a good value price. Hence this beautifully poised, elegant white. It’s crafted very much like a high quality white Burgundy, yet the fruit is from the Languedoc. Our winemaker Mark Hoddy picked out premium parcels of Chardonnay grapes from close to Narbonne and the Mediterranean coast. Sea breezes keep temperatures cooler, hence the wine’s pleasing minerally elegance. Mark aged the wine on its lees in old barrels, so that the oak lends a creamy rounded texture, whilst also enabling the wine to age and gain complexity. Yet it retains a minimum of spice and the fruit remains foremost. Gently chill and enjoy on its own or serve with creamy white meat dishes.
