Origin

The Chardonnay is a very special aromatic grape variety as it can grow well in many different climates. The typical character of this Chardonnay Vin de France is derived from the blending and the vinification processes which result in a perfect balance of fruit and acidity.

Vinification

The grapes are chilled before undergoing a gentle pressing. After cold settling, alcoholic fermentation is carried out at low temperature. 1 to 3 months ageing enables the development of secondary aromas.
