"Rethink Chardonnay - this is gorgeous, just a touch of oak and real depth, lovely"
Online Review for 2014
Introducing a wine that represents true fighting spirit in more ways than one. In 1907 vignerons and growers in the Languedoc rebelled against the diluted wines flooding France and undermining their livelihoods - and laid the foundations for today's appellation contrôlée system. This Chardonnay honours their stand and is named after their leader, Marcelin Albert. It also strikes a blow for a grape that's suffered an image crisis in recent years. Hard to see why, because it's the varietal behind Chablis, and here it is at its elegant best. Expect layers of tropical fruit flavours, a dash of oak and an ultra fresh finish. Serve Cuvée 1907 chilled alongside fruits de mer, and raise a glass to Chardonnay and Monsieur Albert. Vive la révolution!
