Classy Burgundian style Chardonnay - beautifully balanced with ripeness, acidity, length and real structure.
The wines of Montsablé are inspired by the desire to craft elegant Burgundian varietals from Southern France. Working with growers in cooler sites of lower vigour, they seek out fruit that delivers clean fruit flavours and great balance. Minimal oak is used resulting in Chardonnay with great palate weight, bright fruit and texture while the Pinot positively sings with lifted cherry and wild strawberry fruit.
Tasting Note: This classic Burgundian variety has been produced in the sunny climate of Languedoc in the south of France. Although much warmer than the cool climate of the Côte d'Or great care has been taken to ensure that it is every bit as elegant. A bright yellow gold hue and seductive scents of blossom and cinnamon spice. A remarkable melange of pears, peach, honey toffee, cream and vanilla (from a short spell of oak ageing) on the palate. Beautifully balanced with ripeness, acidity, length and real structure. A very classy Chardonnay
