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 trusted grower, Bruno Bouché. Sea breezes keep temperatures cooler in his vineyards, hence the wine’s pleasing minerally elegance. The wine is aged on its lees in old barrels, so 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 pleasingly foremost. Gently chill and enjoy on its own or with creamy white meat dishes.
"Lovely. No other Chardonnay comes close at this price. Exceptional smoothness"
