Corette – Chardonnay 2013 – White wine

Corette Chardonnay comes largely from high altitude (400 meters) of vineyards situated at the foot of the Cévennes and from the region of Limoux. The different soil types in this region provide typical accents. The clay and limestone in the vicinity of the Cévennes give the wine a freshness that is very popular. The rich stony clay on the plains of Béziers ensures rich, round wines. And the clay and limestone soils of Carcassonne gives the wine properly fruity notes. The relatively cool climate makes for elegant fresh wines.

According to a Burgundian family recipe 35% of the Chardonnay grapes are fermented and raised in oak barrels. Fermentation takes about three weeks. Then follows the nine-month long education on wood. The remaining wine is fermented at 18-20 ° C in stainless steel tanks for the pure fruit flavors. For bottling both types of wine (wood and stainless steel) merged.

The wine has a beautiful golden yellow color and gives off aromas of both fresh fruit (pear and green apple) and nuts. The taste is elegant and mouth-filling. The aromatic finale contains subtle flavors of apricot, vanilla and oak.

Excellent wine for the aperitif. At the table blends well with shellfish, seafood, poultry, pasta and ripe, creamy witschimmelkazen.
